Presenter Search on 3 judges revealed


SABC3 has announced Jeannie D, DJ Fresh, Sbusiso Kumalo, and Patience Stevens as the official judges for the show’s highly-anticipated new season. Last week, the channel announced that Pabi Moloi will serve as the official host for the new season of Presenter Search on 3.

Even though Jeannie D has been with the show since day one, she’s still excited about returning to choose from thousands of hopefuls. “I’ve been privileged to be part of the presenter search phenomenon from the beginning and it’s such a joy for me to help undiscovered talent fulfil their dreams,” Jeannie says.

DJ Fresh also expressed his gratitude at the opportunity. “It’s such an honour and privilege to be a part of this great movement,” DJ Fresh says.

Presenter Search on 3 spring-boarded the careers of the previous winners Simba Mhere (Top Billing), Jonathan Boynton-Lee (Top Billing), Zoë Brown (Expresso), Danilo Acquisto (Afternoon Express and Win a Home) and Jade Hübner (Top Billing) all of whom became household names. Their journeys to stardom started in the queues of Presenter Search on 3 and this season could be the one to change your life.
