You've probably seen the reports by now. Yes, Noeleen Maholwana-Sangqu is leaving her headlining show, 3Talk. It was reported that the SABC 3Talk show host was fired from the show, but that seems to be the incorrect version of the story.

Noeleen set the record straight when she was questioned about her show on Monday afternoon. She told viewers: "After coming to you live every afternoon for 12 years, the show will be ending on 20 April."

She continued: "After giving it a lot of thought, I let SABC know early last year that I had decided to hang up my 3Talk shoes and bring this amazing adventure to an end at the end of this season. The bottom line is I was not fired. Do not say it again."

In a statement released by the SABC on Monday afternoon, Noeleen said: "When we started the show, I could never have imagined that we would have such an enduring relationship with our viewers." She said she's had the most fabulous 12 years on the show.

"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," she added.

Aisha Mohamed, SABC3's channel head said they are grateful to Noeleen for the support, commitment and professionalism over the past 12 years.
