The family of Jacintha Saldanha is to receive more than £300,000 from a memorial fund.
The nurse's husband and teenage children will be donated money generated from the advertising profits of Sydney station 2Day FM, whose presenters were behind the prank call.
In way of reparations, Southern Cross Austereo (SCA), the parent company of 2Day FM, said it would establish a memorial fund to benefit the nurse's family.
The company said a minimum contribution of around £320,000 would be made.
Rhys Holleran, SCA's chief executive, said: 'We are very sorry for what has happened. It is a terrible tragedy and our thoughts continue to be with the family.
'We hope that by contributing to a memorial fund we can help to provide the Saldanha family with the support they need at this very difficult time.
'The company today reiterates that it is deeply saddened by this tragic and unforeseen event and offers its condolences to the family of Jacintha Saldanha.'
SCA has also cancelled the station's Christmas party, planned for later this week, as it would be 'inappropriate' to go ahead with the event for Sydney staff, said a spokeswoman.
