It Is Time For Derek Bargwanna, Craig Bruce And Guy Dobson To Answer Questions About The Austereo Culture

2DAY FM Director of Content Derek ‘DB’ Bargwanna is now directly in the media headlights and needs to answer the question “who authorised the call that led to the death of Jacintha Saldanha to go to air?”

As Channel Nine reported tonight in the 6pm new, Bargwanna and Bruce have questions to answer.

As 2DAY FM’s program director, Bargwanna’s job is to authorise what comes out of the speakers.

Of course, that decision is made based on an Austereo philosophy that has been developed over the years and includes a “team” of current decision makers including Craig Bruce, the Head of Content for Austereo and Guy Dobson, the Director of Metropolitan Radio.

So who at Southern Cross Austereo authorised the call that disrupted a London hospital and infringed in the rights of a pregnant women being treated for a serious case of morning sickness?

As Director of Content Derek, I pose that question to you.

As Head of Content Craig, I pose that question to you.

As Director of Metropolitan Radio Guy, I pose that question to you.

And as CEO Rhys Holleran, I pose that question to you as well.

A woman is dead, reported to be shamed by a prank that went to air without the authorisation of the victims involved in the call.

Shamed because staff of Sydney radio station 2DAY FM, owned by Southern Cross Austereo, has been so arrogant that they would even consider interrupting the workers at a hospital while they were in the process of savings people lives.

In the interviews on chosen media outlets Today Tonight and A Current Affair last night, the perpetrators of the call Mel Greig and Michael Christian clearly stated it was not their decision to put that call to air and that the decision was made by “the team” and “above them”.

So Derek, Craig, Guy and Rhys, I think the world would like some honest answers now. You are all on “the team” and “above them”. One of you must know who authorised that call. Who was it?
