ABC faces backlash after presenter Natasha Exelby reportedly banned over 'daydream' blooper
Presenter Natasha Exelby's hilarious reaction when she realises the cameras are back on following a late night ABC News 24 story has gone viral.
However, when the package got over and cameras went back to Natasha, she was caught with her head down and caught fiddling with a pen.
In fairness to Exelby she regained her composure relatively quickly and was able to regain control of the situation.
Gaven Morris, director of ABC, told The Guardian: "Live television is a demanding art and slip-ups will happen - our presenters are humans, not robots".
Curiously, the statement also said Exelby's future on-air roles would be "subject to performance management".
Mr Morris added that ABC wanted her to continue working casual shifts and regretted that the incident had attracted such attention.
In the meantime, journalists have rallied around Exelby to reveal similar mistakes under the hashtag #PutYourBloopersOut.
