Rhys Holleran, the network’s chief executive, told reporters that the hosts were “understandably incredibly distraught, too, and we’re concerned for both their well-being.”
The International Herald-Tribune quoted the company as saying it was providing intensive psychological counseling to Ms. Greig and Mr. Christian.
Thousands of pointed complaints were posted on social media sites, advertisers pulled their spots from the show and the hospital’s chairman assailed the radio network. The two hosts have been taken off the air and told not to comment, and they have reportedly disabled their Twitter accounts.
