SABC3's early morning lifestyle show Expresso is on a search for two new presenters to fill-up their team.

Long-time presenter Ewan Strydom and Presenter Search winner Zoë Brown recently left the show so there are two presenting spots up for grabs.

The castings are happening through the Presenter Search on 3 format, which means that the audition process and selection of winners will be filmed and aired on SABC3 as a 13-episode reality show from Wednesday, 7 August.

Who is Expresso looking for?

Creative individuals with a unique personality.

Permanent legal residents of South Africa, who are 18 years or older.

Matriculants or graduates i.e. you must have a matric certificate.

You also need to have a valid passport.

You'll find more on this with other criteria on the Presenter Search website here: Presenter Search on 3: Audition Terms and Conditions 2019

Audition details

To audition, you need to record up to a 1 minute video telling the show what makes you unique and what YOU would bring to the show.

You need to post your clip on Instagram using the hashtag #PresenterSearchon3 and the show will find you.
If your entry is successful, you’ll be contacted and invited to audition for a panel of judges. The auditions will be held in Cape Town, Durban and Joziburg between 5 and 10 August 2019.

Closing date for submissions: 23h59 on 31 July 2019.

Your video must remain visible on Instagram until 5 September 2019. (Please note: the Terms and Conditions say 31 August but the Audition Call says 5 September so rather leave it until 5 September to be safe).

If you aren't contacted by 2 August you should consider your entry unsuccessful.

Break a leg!
