Reporter Hypnotized By Mystical Pen On Live TV”

However news that Exelby, who is a freelancer, has been removed from the on-air roster hasn't gone down well with the public who had been hugely supportive of her slip-up.

Curiously, the statement also said Exelby's future on-air roles would be "subject to performance management".

Sources told The Guardian that Exelby had been offered more training and may be given on-air shifts again at a later stage.

A broadcaster has received an outpouring of support after footage emerged of her gasping in horror when she realised she was live on air. "Not my finest hour".

'Myself and my mesmerising pen honourably salute you!'

It happens to the best of them, right?

Wendy Harmer, the host of Mornings on ABC Radio, tweeted to Ms Exelby to say she fell victim to gripping daydreams often.

Ten presenter Tracey Spicer admitted: "I fainted twice and said "f***" once". She later took the incident in good humour, writing on Twitter to thank everyone for their support.

More than 1,000 people have signed an online petition calling for her to be reinstated. ABC announced April 10 that Exelby had been fired for her actions.

She was seen with her head down and fiddling with a pen for a few seconds before realising she was back in the spotlight. Her eyes drift upward toward the camera before widening in sudden cognition that she's on air as she gasps: "now to sport".

Exelby recovered from the blooper, responding promptly when the next package ended and continuing to anchor the coverage until past midnight.

It was not the first time that Exelby had a blooper make news, according to The Guardian.

She apologized soon after the segment.

Frankly, I'm just impressed that there were no eruptions of profanity. I screw up so often during test shoots that it's a miracle we can cobble something together for a complete video.

The Ten news presenter had enjoyed some flirting with an Irish guest who she said "might get to be one lucky little leprechaun" before later getting a "case of the giggles".
