Natasha Exelby's Famous Blooper Has Landed Her A Plum Newsreader Gig

The same can't be said for Natasha Exelby, the now former news anchor, who was sacked for being completely fascinated by her pen, and unprepared for the transition from one packaged news report to another.

The network on Tuesday denied earlier reports that she'd been fired, but not before viewers, including some celebrities and politicians, rushed to her defense.

ABC News was quick to rubbish the reports of Ms. Exelby's demotion saying, "No one would be punished for that".

Morris also shared that the channel wants her to to continue working various shifts she has been rostered for.

Other journalists began telling their own embarrassing stories in solidarity, many under the hashtag #PutYourBloopersOut. "Myself and my mesmerizing pen honorably salute you". Several years ago, she giggled repeatedly while reading serious news items about deaths and disasters for Channel Ten.

He added that she had not been punished for the mistake, but he had "conveyed our regret that this has attracted such attention".

Comments were both critical of the station's harsh actions and complimentary of Exelby's accomplishments. But it was Exelby's reaction, after she realised she was back on-air, that has left people across the world laughing!

The broadcaster suggested that there should have been a floor staff that could ensure Exelby was alerted when she was about to appear on camera. It was at this point the cameras caught her, head down and engrossed in fiddling with her pen.

Speaking with news.com.au before the news of her reported sacking went public, Exelby admitted Sunday's performance was not her most professional moment, but managed to see the humorous side.

'Loved it Natasha - only diff btw you and me EVERY day.is that I'm on radio, ' she wrote.
