Natasha Exelby: Why a blooper led reporters to share embarrassing tales

This day dreaming Television anchor from Australia, Natasha Exelby went viral over the Internet from past 24 hours for her surprisingly amusing experiences as she was caught on live.

Reports surfaced last night that management at the ABC chose to ban weekend newsreader Natasha Exelby from appearing on air after she was caught off guard during a live news shift. But in case you were wondering, they happen to be just as in need of quick breaks, like the rest of us.

The controversy over ABC journo Natasha Exelby's on-air blooper has prompted every man and his dog to have their say - including former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd.

It's a slip-up nearly every newsreader in the world has committed, but rarely costs the TV presenter their on-air job.

When she was reading serious news items several years ago on network Ten, she laughed repeatedly after her colleague asked his interviewee, Irish adventurer Allan Dixon, whether he would "take an Ozzy wife".

More than 1,000 people have signed an online petition calling for her to be reinstated. The segment ended but it took a few moments before Exelby, a freelance journalist, realized the camera was back on her.




Ater an audible gasp, the television presenter regains her composure quickly.

She recovered well and has since scored a new fan base.

But, being a professional, she does manage to throw to the sports section. I screw up so often during test shoots that it's a miracle we can cobble something together for a complete video.

According to News.com.au, Exelby was told by ABC24 that she was relieved of her on-air duties.

While the world was laughing at Exelby, her bosses were not. Her reaction is over the top.
