SABC 3 has announced that it is welcoming five brand new faces to the channel as the fourth season of 'Presenter Search on 3' comes to an end.
'Presenter Search on 3' judges Jeannie D, Sbusiso Kumalo, DJ Fresh and Patience Stevens.
While initially looking for three new presenters to join the SABC 3 stable, judges Patience Stevens, DJ Fresh, Sbusiso Kumalo and Jeannie D were impressed by the overwhelming amount of talent and have decided to open up the industry even further by welcoming Harmony Katulondi, Ryle De Morny, Fezile Mkhize, Palesa Tembe, and Thabiso Makhubela to the SABC 3 family.
League of extraordinary gentlemen
Harmony, Ryle and Fezile struck up quite the bromance during their time on 'Presenter Search on 3', and dubbed themselves as the league of extraordinary gentlemen during the masterclass rounds. The three continue their adventure by giving Top Billing viewers the best of the good life as they join one of the country’s most glamorous lifestyle magazine shows. “Speaking French will allow me to add to an international flair to Top Billing. My diverse background, upbringing and curious nature will also bring an interesting perspective to the segments,” Harmony said shortly after receiving his spot on the show.
Ryle adds that “I’m going to bring a fresh new energy to this show. I hope to share as much love as possible and take my viewer on awesome journeys with me as we discover and showcase moments, events and areas in a unique, raw and genuinely real way.” Finally, Fezile says that he plans to “maintain the high standard it’s always been known for with a huge dose of whimsy, energy and most importantly heart!”
The beautiful and bubbly Palesa Tembe joins Afternoon Express where she joins fellow judge Jeannie D and Bonnie Mbuli. “I'm going to bring some spunk to afternoon TV,” Palesa says. “I’m excited to bring a younger energy to the show and add to the already positive atmosphere the show delivers on a daily basis.”
Unique style and spunk
Lastly, brand analyst Thabiso Makhubela joins South Africa’s feel-good breakfast show, Expresso, and promises to pack a punch with a passion for making people’s morning. “I love Expresso and I can’t wait to bring my refreshing, upbeat energy to the show. The show is extremely important because people are waking up and the tone on the show sets the audience’s mood for the entire day. I am like the power bank for the people and I don’t take that responsibility lightly.”
Although Mosa Kaiser, a fellow Top 6 contestant, didn’t get a permanent slot on SABC 3’s flagship shows, the judges felt that her talent shouldn’t go to waste. So, Mosa will be joining the Expresso morning show as a field reporter. She will be shooting various inserts which will be flighted during the live show. Naturally, Mosa is excited to join the Expresso family. “I am really happy about my new gig with Expresso. It promises to be a lot of fun and I am excited to bring my unique style and spunk to these inserts. I am so proud of myself and I am excited for the journey that lies ahead.”
Harmony, Ryle and Fezile can be seen on Top Billing as early as this Saturday (4 August) while Palesa and Thabiso will be making their debut on their respective shows from Monday 6 August. As the judges have stressed the entire season, the hard work starts now.
