Today's Karl Stefanovic loses it over Sarah Abo's on-air blunder

Brooke Boney made sure to point out Sarah's slip-up.

Today presenters Karl Stefanovic and Brooke Boney were in stitches during Monday morning’s broadcast after their co-host Sarah Abo made a hilarious blunder live on-air.

While reporting about the hazardous weather in Melbourne that stopped planes from landing and taking off from the airport, Sarah accidentally said “flog” instead of “fog”.

“Breaking news from Melbourne, all flights in and out of the airport have been delayed or cancelled as thick flog blankets the city,” she told viewers.

While Sarah appeared to be unaware of her mistake and continued her report, Brooke interrupted and asked, “Thick what, Sarah?”

“Thick fog,” she replied. “Fog, fog.”


Karl was then shown laughing at Sarah’s gaffe as she attempted to make a joke about the awkward slip-up.

“There are some, you know,” she laughed, before adding, “No I won’t go there actually.”

“That would be quite a hazard, is all I’m going to say,” Brooke remarked.
