Michael Christian back on air on Today Network

Royal prank radio presenter Michael Christian quietly went back on air this morning.

The Today Network’s Melbourne station Fox FM put Christian into the late morning shift.

However unlike other timeslots, the station’s website only describes the show as “Hit music!” and does not identify the presenter.

During on-air links listened to by Mumbrella this morning, the presenter did not identify himself to listeners.

In December, Christian and Mel Greig made a hoax call to the London hospital treating a pregnant Duchess of Cambridge. After the prank made global headlines the nurse who put the call through, Jacintha Saldanha, committed suicide.

Upate: The station’s owner responded with the following statement:

“Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) is pleased to announce that Michael Christian today returns to air on Fox FM Melbourne.

“SCA CEO Rhys Holleran said: ‘We are happy to have Michael back on air. We have always supported our talent returning to work when appropriate and today marks that occasion for MC. We look forward to welcoming Mel Grieg back when the time is right.'”
