Newsreader ‘quits’ weeks after embarrassing gaffe live on TV made her famous around the world

By: , Category: Entertainment

A newsreader has reportedly resigned weeks after an embarrassing gaffe live on air saw her go viral around Australia and the world.

Natasha Exelby had been presenting the news when the show had cut away from the studio to a pre-recorded video tape.

Without her knowledge, the camera cut back to her unexpectedly, broadcasting her looking distracted and frowning at her pen.

When she realised she was actually on air, she jumped up in her seat and her jaw dropped.

Thank U all for ur generous support. Not my finest hour. Myself and my mesmerising pen honourably salute you!

She even won an Australian TV award.


An ABC spokesman told Yahoo7 News: “Natasha Exelby has chosen not to do some casual shifts she was rostered for.

“Natasha was not taken off-air because of a ‘blooper’ and ABC News has been clear that we’re open to working with her again, including the possibility of future presenting shifts.”

Exelby declined to comment on the matter when approached by Yahoo7.
