on news channels when theyre asking questions why do they pause and leave like a awkward silence?

This is a delay in the satellite link between the TV studio where the host is located, and the remote location where the answerer is.

Mostly it’s due to a delay in the signal going from the station to the reporter. Along with that, the reporter might also be taking a second to process what was said to be able to respond accurately

This only occurs when their correspondents are at a remote location, it’s due to the delay between the video feed that the studio receives and what the remote team receives. So it’s basically like you talking to your friend through the phone, and it takes 3 seconds for your voice to reach your friend and vice versa. So 3 seconds for the message to get to you, and a couple of seconds to come up with a response.
