MC back on air at Fox FM

Michael Christian has returned to work at Fox FM this morning.

When MC left to take up the national nights position, Ryan 'Burgo' Burgess moved from SAFM to take his morning slot at the Fox. With Burgo returning to be part of the 2013 SAFM breakfast show, the station have been searching for a replacement.

Ever since the much publicised Royal prank call, MC has been on stress leave but will now permanently return to work and take up the morning shift again on Fox FM.

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 Greig back when the time is right."

A spokeswoman for SCAhas told the Herald Sun the network were not trying to “sneak” Christian back on-air.

"I don’t think the organisation was trying to hide anything," she said, "His return was never going to be the subject of a bells and whistles-type announcement.”

On the status of Mel Greig.....

"She hasn’t given any indication that she is ready to return," the SCA spokeswoman said.

The day we have to stop telling jokes will be a very sad day. Great to see MC is back where he should be and awarded for it! Not everyone in the UK is as pathetic as the media make out!!! I have met no-one who cast any blame for the poor nurse; it was one of those unpredicatable things.
