Noeleen Maholwana-Sangqu confirmed the news to viewers yesterday at the beginning of her show. She confirmed that the last show would be airing on the 20th of April 2015.
The show has enjoyed an unprecedented run on South African television and has been fortunate to be a part of viewers’ daily routines for over a decade.
After such a long journey with the show, Noeleen Maholwana Sangqu decided a year ago that she would be hanging up her 3Talk shoes at the end of the current season.
“When we started the show, I could never have imagined that we would have such an enduring relationship with our viewers. I have had the most fabulous 12 years on 3Talk. It’s been an amazing adventure which has brought so much fun and meaning into my life, but after a lot of thought, I think it’s time for me to bid farewell,” remarked Noeleen.
“We are sincerely grateful to Noeleen for her incessant support, commitment and professionalism over the last 12 years. Noeleen has moved, inspired and empowered our viewers through the many episodes of 3Talk. It is the end of an era” said Aisha Mohamed, SABC3 Head of Bouquet.
“SABC3 viewers can expect the channel to keep in line with its lifestyle offering post the last season of 3Talk. The channel will continue to bring viewers entertaining variety and lifestyle content which will be communicated closer to launch date,” continued Aisha.
Keep watching 3Talk every afternoon at 4pm on SABC3, as we wind down towards the end of an era.
