Because the station has a history of setting up dangerous stunts ... some purposely designed to cause panic and mayhem. 2DayFM's "Kyle and Jackie O" show aired a segment called "Desperate Acts" back in 2009 ... where a listener was given $1,000 to call her sister and convince her their mother was injured, bleeding, and in need of medical attention. It worked ... the sister called 911 and sent paramedics speeding to the mother, who was totally fine. That hoax prompted a police investigation. Later in 2009 ... Kyle and Jackie O hooked up a teenager to a lie detector while her mother grilled her about her sex life. The stunt blew up in their faces when the girl suddenly revealed she had been abused when she was 12. That segment led to another police investigation, and got the DJs a week-long suspension. 2DayFM honchos still signed off on Michael and Mel pulling the Kate prank.
