Mark Gillies, Channel 10's Executive Editor of News, apparently confirmed Natasha's new job in a letter to staff earlier this week.

He wrote: & # 39; It's time for Natasha to return to journalism … the career she started in her home state of Queensland.

& # 39; I understand she will be missed there; she had to convince her loving grandmother that her move to Melbourne is the right one. We know that. & # 39;

The new role comes two years after Natasha was caught daydreaming and playing with her pen during a live broadcast of ABC News, with images of the moment when it later went viral.

She was eventually fired & # 39; & # 39; by the public broadcaster, but a spokesperson for the network insisted that it wasn't because of the on-air blunder.
