Channel Nine's Today Show Reporter Alison Ariotti says she's 'doing fine' after fainting during a live news cross in Brisbane on Tuesday.

Ariotti was describing a car chase on the Gold Coast and in mid-sentence she stopped talking and short audible gasps could be heard.

At the time of her dizzy spell, the Today Show was showing vision of the car chase so viewers were spared of Ariotti collapsing on camera.

"Had it been the vision of her collapsing on the desk I could guarantee that would've been a worldwide YouTube sensation," 3AW Entertainment Reporter Pete Ford said.
