News Anchor Fired After Her 'Unprofessional' Behavior

Natasha Exelby is probably wishing she paid a little more attention during her news broadcast.

Exelby was an anchor on ABC24 in Australia. She was live on air when the segment cut to a pre-recorded segment. Apparently, Exelby had no interest in watching the tape, because when it ended and cut back to her live, the anchor was busy looking at her nails.

Exelby immediately gasped and tried to recover, but everyone had already seen her gaffe.

The video has since gone viral, and the news anchor understands why.

ā€œI can understand why people found it funny, and it was certainly me at my most raw. But I also have to take some responsibility here. Iā€™m a professional and what happened was far from professional,ā€ Exelby said.

It seems like her taking responsibility wasn't enough for ABC, however, who has reportedly relieved Exelby from her duties.

Do you think she should have been fired for her mistake?
