Southern Cross Austereo staff have received death threats and police are investigating, according to a story on news.com.au.

The network have taken measures to protect their executives by hiring bodyguards. A dozen staff are also said to have moved into hotels.

A letter threatening Michael Christian was seized yesterday by detectives for examination.

News Limited revealed that the letter said there were "bullets out there with your (Christian's) name on it" and made further threats.

An un-named source said: "We still have details to come from the hospital and the release of the suicide note. Depending on what comes from that could trigger more anger."

Police are also keeping a close eye on social media to determine any potential threats.
