ABC hosts outdoor broadcast due to bushfire smoke

Presenter Dan Bourchier and his team were evacuated from the studio minutes before the 7pm broadcast, where they gave an impromptu outdoor broadcast.

He signed off saying: ”Hopefully I’ll be back with you tomorrow from the studio, goodnight.”

ABC News Director Gaven Morris praised the team on Twitter, describing them as “true pros”.

The impromptu outdoor broadcast received praise online, with one user commenting that “the show must go on!”

Earlier, social media users shared stills and footage of thick clouds of smoke in Canberra.

Weather watchers have said “it’s almost guaranteed” all-time heat records will be broken in major cities over the coming days, with Canberra forecast to hit 43C on Saturday — the capital’s hottest ever temperature.
