Shocked news anchor tosses to sports segment after hilarious on-air blooper

ABC newsreader Natasha Exelby got a shock when she was caught daydreaming on the job ABC newsreader Natasha Exelby got a shock when she was caught daydreaming on the job

Caught off-guard as the camera turned to her after a prerecorded package ended, Natasha's reaction is a GIF waiting to happen.

The Australian newsreader caught napping - or more accurately: staring at her pen - has reportedly been banned from further live appearances.

Morris said he wants Exelby to continue working for the ABC as a freelancer.

Josh Butler‏, the associate editor of the Huffington Post Australia tweeted: "Don't think I've seen a single person who agrees with ABC decision to sideline Natasha Exelby".

Thank U all for ur generous support.

Unfortunately for Exelby, it appears as though execs at the ABC failed to see the amusing side, with The Daily Telegraph reporting that she will not be allowed in front of the camera again in the wake of her very public stuff-up. Not my finest hour.

Syria attack fallout: Putin cancels meet with Tillerson
The next step would be to use United Nations talks to negotiate a political transition that could include Assad leaving power. They say that entails negotiating cease-fires between Assad's government and rebels, who have been fighting both IS and Assad.

Japan to extend unilateral sanctions against North Korea
The sanctions include a total ban on trade and on the entry of North Korean vessels into Japanese ports. This brings the total number of persons subject to travel restrictions and asset freeze to 41.

After the Daily Telegraph reported on Monday that the Queensland-born journalist had been "banned", the opposition leader, Bill Shorten, led calls on Twitter for her reinstatement.

Natasha Exelby made the world laugh yesterday when her on-air blooper went viral. Natasha then opens the segment with wide open eyes and throws down the pen to start the bulletin.

However, the ABC released a statement a short time ago, insisting Exelby's lack of future newsreading shifts had nothing to do with the events of the weekend.

There are rumours that the presenter has been sacked by the channel, but Janta Ka Reporter could not confirm the development.

When she realises she is live on air she nearly falls out of her chair in shock - leaving viewers in stitches.

Exelby, for those who loathe social media, is a casual newsreader who was caught daydreaming during a live broadcast.
