Noeleen suddenly adds a studio audience

2012-08-10 14:39

Three Talk with Noeleen, SABC3’s weekday talk show hosted by Noeleen Maholwana-Sangqu, has finally – and suddenly – added a live studio audience.

The live show also unceremoniously dumped its still-new white set and replaced its red and white on-air logo image with translucent blue on Tuesday.

Neither SABC3 nor Urban Brew Studios, which produces the daily chatfest for the channel, made any announcement about the addition of a live studio audience and also didn’t announce the new set.

The new set, still by Michael Gill Designs and constructed by Sets Drapes Screens, now has a dark-toned, fake mahogany and circular aquamarine look with bland tan wall panelling.

‘A work in progress’
Three Talk with Noeleen tried since late 2009 to add a live studio audience – plans which were constantly scuppered and postponed.

Urban Brew Studios told Channel24 that Three Talk with Noeleen will now be hosting a weekly studio audience.

“There won’t be a set day for this as we will determine which shows will include audiences depending on the subject of the day.

We want the audience to have a fantastic experience so we’ll ensure that when they do join us in studio, they’ll be in for a treat with great entertainment, inspiration and information.”

Viewers and fans of Three Talk with Noeleen on SABC3 who want to be a part of the in-studio audience can send an e-mail to to be included as studio audience members in upcoming shows.

About the new set and on-air look, Urban Brew Studios says: “In the world of live TV, nothing should be permament. We’re always tweaking, developing and striving to better our show.

After 9 years on TV, we never want to get too comfortable, so we always see Three Talk as a work in progress.

“Yesterday (Tueday) we went on air with a new look that reflects where we’re at right now. It’s sophisticated and clean with a touch of sparkle. It provides us with more space, and of course, the fantastic opportunity to have a live audience.”
