Local News Anchor Pulled Off Air After Getting Caught Daydreaming On Live TV — But Fans Totally Have Her Back!
The Internet learned her name, and now it will save her job.
Freelance journalist Natasha Exelby (above) was taken off the air after missing her cue during a televised broadcast — but the career-stalling flub was actually a blessing in disguise when her adorable blooper went viral!
The Internet extended a protective arm over the Australian journalist when it was reported that Exelby had been sidelined from her newsreading duties from the Australian Broadcasting Corp.
A spokesperson told local press in Sydney that the anchor was a "casual contributor, not a staff member" at the news network. This caused many to worry that the anchor would be permanently benched over Sunday's innocent blunder — and even led to a petition calling for ABC to "reinstate" Exelby.
