After a grueling few months where contestants were put through their paces in a series of auditions, physical challenges and improvisation tests, thousands of hopeful contestants have been whittled down to three winners, one of whom is Good Hope FM weekend show presenter of The Music Lab (12:00 – 15:00 Saturdays and Sundays), Danilo Acquisto.
Acquisto won the sought after presenter position on the all-new SABC 3 lifestyle show, Afternoon Express, where he will join another ex-Good Hope FM presenter, Jeannie D, and celebrity media personality, Bonang Matheba - both of whom were judges on Presenter Search on 3 along with Phat Joe.
“Being part of Presenter Search on 3 has been a long and arduous journey of constant comparison and competition, filled with personal growth beyond measure,” Danilo Acquisto said of his experience as one of five final contestants.
“Amidst the anxiety that comes with being part of the process I have particularly appreciated the support from South Africans from all walks of life. They have made the journey at each stage worthwhile and exciting because I knew I was doing it for the fans and for myself - no one else. I am very excited to say that the 3 months of hard work has finally paid off as I accept the position as the brand new host of Afternoon Express. This is a big step in my career and I look forward to making TV Magic on SABC 3".
Congratulations, Danilo. We trust you'll do a great job on Afternoon Express.
