Wanted: Presenter to share Bonang's TV limelight
Popular SABC show Live to get a major revamp
POPULAR SABC1 show Live will get a revamp over the next few weeks.
The channel will search nationally for a presenter to share the stage with "it" girl Bonang Matheba, pictured.
"The hottest show in the land" lost two of its presenters when Sizwe Dhlomo and Minnie Dlamini resigned last year.
SABC publicity manager Vukile Madlala confirmed that the December road shows the music programme broadcast last year and the pre-recorded shows flighted recently would be the last episodes in which Dhlomo and Dlamini appear.
Madlala said Matheba would be the only presenter of the show for the month. He added: "There are huge plans for the show over the next few weeks. Live is going to change.
"The format will be different and we need someone who will fit the new approach."
Show favourite Matheba, who has been with the show for three years, is thrilled about the new challenge.
"I am very sad to have lost yet another pair of colleagues, but I am also very excited to see where the show is headed," Matheba said.
"Live is one of the biggest shows in the country. I'm excited and humbled by the confidence my team has in me. It will be very challenging to carry a show of this magnitude but also quite exciting."
Dlamini acts in the M-Net soapie The Wild, and the pay station's Mzansi Insider.
Dhlomo presents a show on YFM and MTV Base.
