The Dangers of Live TV! Sunrise’s Edwina Bartholomew apologizes for turning off Mark Beretta’s microphone while using the TOILET

Mark Beretta has worked as a sports presenter on Seven for over 20 years.

And even a veteran if he suffered a technical glitch in the air, with his microphone turned off during Wednesday’s episode of sunrise.

In a clip shared to weather forecaster Sam Mac’s Twitter that night, news and entertainment reporter Edwina Bartholomew apologized for accidentally turning off his microphone package while using the bathroom in Channel Seven studios.

‘I went to the bathroom and accidentally turned off Beretta’s microphone. My apologies, ‘said Edwina, 37.

Bewildered, Kochie asked Edwina how someone else can turn off someone else’s microphone.

‘We have a small remote that allows us to turn off our microphone when we start using the facilities,’ explained the mother of one.

Mark, 54, who had his microphone turned back on by a crew member, joked to Kochie that it was “unbelievable.”

Since joining the Seven Network in 1995, Mark has attended major sporting events around the world, including the Summer and Winter Olympics, and has joined the commentary team for AFL matches and the Australian Open tennis.

Despite the benefits of international travel and access to some of the sport’s greats, Mark previously revealed the worst of working on Sunrise.

He told The Sunday Telegraph’s Stellar magazine in 2019: ‘We can’t do anything on weekday evenings.’

Mark, who wakes up for work every weekday at 3:30 am, added: “And on Friday nights we’re so tired – you’re just really, really exhausted.”

But he said the lack of sleep is a small price to pay for the best TV job as he stumbles upon David Koch, Natalie Barr and then co-host Samantha Armytage.

Grateful: Despite the early morning start on Sunrise and the lack of sleep, Mark previously told The Sunday Telegraph's Stellar magazine that working with the team is a 'privilege' because he 'admires and respects' them.  Pictured: Natalie

‘But I love it, and it’s a privilege. I work with an incredible team that I constantly admire and respect, ‘he said.

Elsewhere in the feature, Mark described Kochie as a “role model.”

“He’s someone I’ve looked up to for a long time; he’s a great man in what he’s done in his life and just in his whole attitude towards people, ”he said.
