12 years is a long time and any show that has lasted that long deserve an applaud, that is the story of Noleen who has successfully hosted her show on Sabc3 for a long standing and accomplished 12 years. The show engaged the country in conversations every afternoon on SABC3, but the 3talk with noleen was confirmed canceledearly this year. The successor of 3talk with Noleen has been announced as a show called Afternoon Express on Sabc3.

The new show, Afternoon Express, which is set to premiere on the 4 May at 4.00pm on SABC 3 will be hosted by Bonang Matheba, Bonnie Mbulie and Jeannie D. The trio are not new to South African television. Matheba and Jeannie D are presenters on the upmarket lifestyle show Top Billing, also broadcasted on SABC 3.

 

“The show will give women an opportunity to interact and engage daily,” says Bradley van den Berg, Afternoon Express’ executive producer, saying the talk show will inspire viewers “to take the courage to try something new and become their best selves”.

“I am really excited to be stepping into a new terrain with SABC3 and the opportunity to co-host with Jeannie D and Bonnie,” says Bonang Matheba.

“I’m very excited to be part of this experience and to be doing a new show with my Top Billingfamily,” says Jeannie D. “This is a winning formula that keeps growing and growing.

“I’m so thrilled to be one of the hosts; it is a great concept and there is so much to look forward to,” says Bonnie Mbuli. “I don’t think there has ever been a more exciting time for television in South Africa – I can’t wait”.

“We hope that making a date with Afternoon Express will be making an appointment to have fun,” says Patience Stevens, the managing director of Tswelopele Productions.

“We have three of the country’s most talented presenters, we are very excited to have this opportunity and we are looking forward to this challenge”.

The show will engage viewers in topics ranging from cooking, to fashion and finance and will have real-time audience interaction via social media. It is said to have more of a youthful swing to it.bonang
