ABC newsreader, Natasha Exelby, was caught out not paying attention LIVE on air and her reaction is "priceless".

The national broadcaster has reportedly barred Exelby from on-air roles after a hilarious clip of her appearing to daydream while the camera cut back to her went viral. But in case you were wondering, they happen to be just as in need of quick breaks, like the rest of us.

In an embarrassing story for the ABC, the Daily Telegraph originally reported on Monday that Exelby had been "banned" and even Labor Leader, Bill Shorten offered support to the journalist.

I, for one, stand with Exelby.

On Sunday, an Australian newsreader missed her cue, panicked, and we were all able to relate to being caught off-guard.

Dozens of others have joined in, calling for the ABC to reverse its decision and an online petition has been created, which has already attracted more than 600 signatures.

Ms Exelby received a message of support from actor Russell Crowe who wrote: "Come on ABC - Australian Broadcasting Commission - talk about an overreaction to an overreaction". She was staring at a pen without objective.

Among the bloopers to be shared was one radio reporter who said he accidentally revealed on a family morning breakfast show that Santa isn't real.

In video that has since gone viral, the former "Wake Up!" co-host is seen looking startled as she suddenly realizes the cameras have returned to her after a prerecorded package has finished.

But that did not stop her from doing her work, like a true professional she manages to throw to the sports section.

According to News.com.au, Exelby was told by ABC24 that she was relieved of her on-air duties.

She previously apologised to viewers after laughing her way through a bulletin about fatal riots in Brazil and a building collapse in India.

"She's human. Great reaction", a different user remarked.

'I got a case of the giggles a little bit earlier while reading some very serious news and if I have offended anyone I am sincerely sorry'.
