The ever-popular Presenter Search on 3 has returned and will be stopping over in the Mother City to find fresh talent to host various shows on SABC 3.

This is not just any audition to host a TV show, SABC 3 is looking for someone that embodies the spirit of the popular TV channel, and who can shine a spotlight on the progress and aspirations. If you have what it takes, the possibilities are endless.

Auditions are taking place in:

– Port Elizabeth on Sunday the 25thof March at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium
– Cape Town on Saturday the 7th and Sunday the 8th of April at a venue still to be confirmed
– Durban on Saturday the 14th and Sunday the 15th of April at the Durban Exhibition Centre
– Johannesburg on Friday the 20th, Saturday the 21st and Sunday the 22nd of April at Wanderers Cricket Stadium

Television presenting is just not about the fame, this career demands more than looks and adoring social media fans. This year’s winners will also become the new faces of SABC 3.

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 you could follow in their footsteps.

Do you think you could be the next Top Billing presenter? Can you talk to the country daily on Afternoon Express? Are you ready to wake South Africa up as the newest member of the Expresso morning show?

If you are, be sure to diarise auditions in Cape Town.

This season of Presenter Search on 3 will air on May 10, every Thursday at 7.30pm on SABC3.
