  • The Australian radio station that aired a prank call to Kate Middleton’s London hospital could face criminal charges. It’s unclear whether the DJs on 2DayFM, Mel Greig and Michael Christian, made the decision to air the call, or the executives above them. This morning, the station announced it would donate $525K to the family of Jacintha Saldanha, the nurse at the hospital who answered the DJs’ call and patched them through to Kate’s nurse. Saldanha later committed suicide. [USA Today, CNN]
