Royal prank station to give $500,000 to nurse's family

- +

An Australian radio station Tuesday pledged at least Aus$500,000 (US$523,600) to help the grieving family of a nurse duped by a royal prank phone call, after coming under sustained scrutiny over the hoax. 

Sydney radio station 2Day FM presenters Michael Christian (L) and Mel Greig appear on Channel Nine Network news discussion show "A Current Affair" on December 10. The Australian radio network came under renewed pressure to fully explain how its royal prank call was cleared to air after the shattered hosts said they were not ultimately responsible.

Nurse Jacintha Saldanha, who fielded the hoax call from Sydney station 2Day FM to London's King Edward VII Hospital, was found Friday after apparently committing suicide.
