On Thursday, a week after the apparent suicide of Jacintha Saldanha, the Australian Communications and Media Authority opened a formal investigation into the broadcast by the station 2DayFM. The investigation will focus on the compliance of the licensee with its license conditions and the Commercial Radio Codes of Practice, ACMA said in a statement.
Chris Chapman, chairman of the ACMA, noted that the organization's "formal regulatory relationship is always with the relevant licensee (and not the presenters of any broadcast in question)." This means, the ACMA will be examining the radio station as a whole and not suspended DJs Michael Christian and Mel Greig specifically.
