This is the hilarious moment a newsreader was caught off guard during a live broadcast!
Natasha Exelby was presenting an evening bulletin on ABC News 24 when she found herself completely unaware she was back live on air.
A news report had just finished when the bulletin cut back to show Exelby inside the public broadcaster’s Sydney studio, not looking at the camera. She was seen with her head down and fiddling with a pen for a few seconds before realising she was back in the spotlight.
A clearly shocked Exelby, with her eyes wide open, threw down her pen in a flash and simultaneously let out an audible gasp.
While clearly shaken by the lapse in concentration, she quickly recovered to handball the next story over to the sports desk, complete with a wry smile.
