TLC Next Great Presenter Search

The TLC Next Great Presenter Search entries are nearing an end and with only a week left we thought we should share some of the five presenters you can look up to for inspiration. In no particular order here’s the list.

Ursula Chikane


She’s been in the broadcasting industry for more than 10-years and could teach you a thing or two about being a top-notch presenter. Ursula Chikana has swiftly maneuvered herself from being a TV presenter, to being a radio personality and an MC for many prestigious events. Watch her on TV or listen to her on radio and you can tell that Ursula was born to do this. Take the time to watch some of her clips on YouTube you might learn some valuable lessons from her.



We’ve always admired the growth of Idols SA presenter and executive producer, Proverb. The man has switched his brand from him not only being just a rapper but also a producer, voice-over artist, radio personality and a sought-after MC. Proverb’s poise and charm on stage is not only capturing but it also helps teach aspiring male presenters how to display just enough confidence in-front of the camera without coming across as being arrogant.

Pearl Modiadie

Pearl Modiadie

From presenting kids shows like Craze-E to having one of the highest ranking talk shows on South African Television. Pearl Modiadie is the perfect example of how to transition from teenage presenter to adult presenter whilst still maintaining the fans who have followed you from day one.

Pearl moved from presenting youth shows to having her own talk show, presenting at red carpet award ceremonies and is probably one of the best co-presenters on Metro FM.

Bonang Matheba/Minnie Dlamini

Bonang and minnie

Just like Ursula, these two ladies are able to TV present and MC an event extremely well. What we also like about Bonang and Minnie is their ability to monetize their brands too. The ladies have been associated with many brands and have not only managed to maintain but retain those relationships. If there’s one thing you can learn from Minnie and Bonang is how to turn your presenting career into a money making business that will catapult your brand to the next level.

Phat Joe

Longevity is something that most in the entertainment industry struggle in achieving, however, the likes of Phat Joe have managed to be in the industry despite the controversies that have surrounded him in his career as media personality. Phat Joe stepped into the entertainment scene in the 90's and he is still here in 2016, presenting, hosting events and doing more than just.
