After successful auditions in three of SA’s biggest cities, the spotlight now turns to Johannesburg. Starting on Friday, 6th March – the same day of Presenter Search on 3’s first broadcast – three days of auditions will take place at the Wanderers Stadium in Sandton. Will the residents of the City of Gold have what it takes to be one of the country’s next three biggest presenters?
The search for prospective presenters for three SABC3 shows moves from Durban to the heart of South African commerce, Johannesburg, where the last leg of this season’s Presenter Search on 3 auditions take place from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th March from 09h00 to 17h00 daily at The Wanderers Stadium.
Friday the 6th March also marks the premiere of the first episode of the 13-week season on SABC3 at 19h30, where South Africans will be watching to see who from Cape Town earned themselves a spot in the National Top 30.
The all-new SABC3 reality TV series Presenter Search on 3 is brought to you by Nedbank. This sizzling new show takes the presenter search concept to a whole new level. This time there will not just be one winner but three! One spot is reserved for the next glamorous Top Billing presenter, another for a candidate that shines on live TV who will join the Expresso Morning Show and the third winner will be the co-host of a brand new SABC3 show, which will be revealed later in the series!
This year’s Presenter Search on 3 will be held in memory and in tribute to one of South Africa’s favourite Top Billing presenters, 2010 Presenter Search winner: Simba Mhere.
SABC3’s Head of Bouquet, Aisha Mohamed commented, “We will fondly remember Simba Mhere for the remarkable person and the most talented presenter that he was. We feel fortunate to have shared in his epic journey.”

Simba and Jonathan have set a very high standard for this year’s Presenter Search on 3 contenders. We’re positive that we will discover winners with exceptional talent that represent the promise of excellence,” continued Aisha.
During February and March, thousands of hopefuls will be whittled down to a National Top 30, but only three are destined for greatness as they are put in the spotlight. Under the discerning eyes of Presenter Search on 3 judges Bonang Matheba, Phat Joe and the vivacious Jeannie D, contestants will face physical challenges, tests of improvisation and intelligence, all whilst holding their cool with the confidence and charisma befitting a savvy presenter.
