2DayFM hosts Mel Greig and Michael Christian have spoken publicly for the first time since the royal radio prank and the death of 46-year-old nurse Jascintha Saldahna.
The pair sat down with Channel 9’s A Current Affair and Channel 7’s Today Tonight. Both interviews were aired tonight at 6:30pm.
Talking to Tracey Grimshaw (in an interview that has been confirmed as UNpaid), Mel Greig described the moment she received the call about Jacintha Saldahna’s death. Holding back tears Mel said: “It was the worst phone call I’ve ever had in my life.”
“It was early Saturday morning,” Michael said. “There were a group of people and they all told us about it and they were there for us.”
“Shattered, gutted and heartbroken,” was how Michael described the emotions he’s going through.
Mel and Michael have been in the care of radio staffers for the past few days, as they are reportedly extremely shaken.
“I’m still trying to make sense of it all,” Michael said. “We’re still trying to work our way through it all.”
