Channel Seven’s Matt Doran threw down his script and stormed off the set of Weekend Sunrise during Sunday’s episode.
Doran, 38, and co-host Sally Bowrey tried to get Dr. Astrophysical & Planetary Sciences’ Kevin France about NASA’s rocket launch but encountered technical difficulties when they didn’t hear him speak for the second time.
It comes after Doran screwed up an exclusive interview with Adele late last year.

Doran and Bowrey interviewed France about the new NASA mission, which will take place June 26-July 12 from the Northern Territory.
A glitch occurred when the co-hosts didn’t hear France answer their question.
“Please tell me we can send a rocket 300km into Earth orbit, but we can’t get comms with Kevin,” Doran joked.
He then apologized for “wandering around for a few minutes” in hopes that producers could fix the on-air glitch.

“I’ll ramble on for a few more minutes hoping we can make a connection. I apologize to Kevin, I apologize to our audience,” he said.
Doran and Bowrey were able to connect with France only to lose it again.
In a playful way, Doran threw away his script and walked off the set, but returned shortly after.
Doran resumed his on-air duty with Channel Seven in early March after taking an extended hiatus to focus on his mental health.
The veteran reporter had taken time off work in late January to recover after being heavily trolled for his infamously botched interview with Adele in late 2021.

He has reportedly spent time in a psychiatric facility, with a source telling The Sunday Telegraph in February that he was “struggling with severe and chronic depression”.
Doran made global headlines in November when it emerged that he had flown to London to interview Adele, 34, but had not listened to her new album beforehand – which so angered her label that they refused to release the footage publish.
He later had to apologize to the singer after admitting he hadn’t heard her album 30 before interviewing her.
Seven had received an exclusive interview with the star as part of his $1 million package, which also included broadcast rights to Adele’s One Night Only concert and her meeting with Oprah Winfrey.

Doran was flown to London for the interview in early November, where he told Adele he had only heard one song from her latest release.
An “offended” Adele is said to have “stormed out” of the interview, according to The Daily Telegraph.
However, Seven and Doran later denied this, saying the singer wasn’t angry and that the interview actually went on longer than planned.
Regardless, her label Sony wasn’t impressed and responded by banning the network from airing any part of the interview during its One Night Only package.
“Furious” Seven executives also reportedly “suspended” Doran for two weeks.
Both Seven and Doran denied this, saying there was no formal suspension and he simply took a week off.

In a lengthy on-air apology at Weekend Sunrise in November, Doran expressed regret after the incident.
“This is a story that has caused a flurry of abuse and ridicule around the world, and if I’ll be honest with you, most of this brutality I deserve and own entirely,” he began.
Doran said he made a “horrible mistake” in assuming Channel Seven hadn’t received a preview copy of the album.
“The day after we landed in London, an email came from Sony that didn’t mention Adele but included a link to her album,” he continued.
“The honest, deadlocked truth is that I missed it. By an absurdly long margin, the most important email I’ve ever missed in my life.’
