Sunrise host Natalie Barr broke down live on-air while paying tribute to her breakfast show colleague who died suddenly this week.

Nathan Templeton, 44, suffered a medical episode while on a walking track near the Barwon River in Geelong on Monday evening.

The morning show honoured the late reporter during Thursday’s program with a picture montage highlighting his best moments with the show.

“We know you had more stories to tell [our viewers]. We are sorry you can’t tell them,” Barr said while fighting back tears.

“Our hearts go out to our family, your two little boys, Kate, and everyone who knew you inside this building and across the Seven Network.

“But also so many of you who have written in and just said that you felt like you knew him because of how he … How he conducted himself on-air.

“Thank you, Tempo, for brightening our lives. We are so fortunate to have known you and worked alongside you. You will be missed.”

More to come.
