BBC says the head of its Radio 2 station has resigned over prank phone call
The British Broadcasting Corp. says that the head of its Radio 2 station has resigned over a prank phone call made to an elderly actor, the Associated Press reported.
The BBC said Thursday that Radio 2 controller Lesley Douglas has stepped down after two of the station's DJs left lewd messages on the voicemail of actor Andrew Sachs.
Rakish comedian Russell Brand has already resigned from his show on the station over the affair. Fellow performer Jonathan Ross was suspended but is still clinging to his job.
Radio 2 is one of Britain's top radio stations. The publicly funded BBC says it will put an apology out on-air.
