Presenter Search on 3 to return for a 4th season

Cape Town – SABC3 and Top Billing's Presenter Search on 3 will return from May for a fourth time, looking to add new South African TV talent to joins shows like Top Billing, Expresso or Afternoon Express.

The Presenter Search on 3 will be produced by Tswelopele Productions with the search for a new presenter or presenters to join various SABC3 shows that is taking place to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the weekly gloss entertainment and lifestyle magazine show Top Billing.

Previous seasons of the highly popular Presenter Search on 3 have made bona fide TV stars and celebrities of Simba Mhere and Jonathan Boynton-Lee with thousands of hopefuls who queued across the country in 2010 and in 2012 when it was known as My Top Billing Dream.

The last season of Presenter Search on 3 was held in 2015 with the winners: Zoe Brown who joined Expresso, Danilo Acquisto who joined Afternoon Express and Jade Hubner who joined Top Billing.

The show was however also a star vehicle launching pad for Chris Jaftha who made the Top 5 and was picked up soon afterwards by Top Billing as a presenter as well anyway, and who is currently also the co-presenter of Dancing with the Stars South Africa on M-Net (DStv 101).

Likewise Mishka Patel was picked up to join Tswelopele Productions' weekly Afrikaans magazine show Pasella on SABC2.

Contestants will be put through their paces in grueling real-life TV challenges before and behind-the-scenes with various presenting tasks taking place in-studio and shot outside on-location to not just test the telegenic mettle of those who want to be on TV but also their adaptability and how they respond to unexpected production curve-balls.
