2Day FM Radio Station

December 7, 2012 by  

2Day FM Radio Station, The Sydney radio station that made a hoax call to the hospital treating the Duchess of Cambridge – three days before the nurse who took the call apparently killed herself – has frequently attracted controversy.

While the call purporting to be from the Queen and Prince Charles was made by presenters Mel Greig and Michael Christian, in August 2009, Kyle Sandilands, a shock jock on 2Day FM, sparked a public backlash following a lie-detector stunt in which a 14-year-old girl revealed she had been raped. Sandilands was dropped as a judge on Australian Idol and criticised by the then prime minister, Kevin Rudd, for his role in the episode.

The stunt saw the teenager strapped to a polygraph machine and asked by her mother whether she was sexually active. The mother volunteered to quiz her daughter despite apparently already knowing she had been assaulted.

“I’ve already told you the story about this, and don’t look at me and smile because it’s not funny,” said the girl. “Oh OK, I got raped when I was 12 years old.”
