Hot30 taken off air

CONTROVERSIAL Austereo radio program Hot30 Countdown, formerly co-presented by Gilgandra-raised Michael Christian, has been quietly given the axe nearly two months after an on-air royal prank went wrong. 

Christian and co-host Mel Greig's prank was condemned by the media after nurse Jacintha Saldanha committed suicide soon after the incident.

Austereo revealed the news on Facebook on Sunday, stating the show will be replaced by The Bump and hosted by Angus O'Loughlin.
