Anele lands plum TV job

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - News - Week­end Post Re­porter

Ef­fer­ves­cent ra­dio pre­sen­ter Anele Mdoda has landed her dream job.

The third sea­son of M-Net’s The Voice South Africa will be hosted by the out­spo­ken Mdoda, it has been con­firmed.

Mdoda, a self-pro­claimed su­per-fan of the pop­u­lar tele­vi­sion fran­chise, will take on this cov­eted role when the show’s blind au­di­tions kick off later this month.

Along with the new host comes a new venue for the pre­re­corded rounds of The Voice South Africa Sea­son 3.

The blind au­di­tions, bat­tles and knock­out rounds will un­fold at Ur­ban Brew Stu­dios in Rand­burg, where more great sur­prises await the phe­nom­e­nal tal­ent.

“Sho, I still can’t be­lieve I’m go­ing to be the host of such a mas­sive M-Net pro­duc­tion,” Mdoda said.

“Since 1992, when my par­ents bought our first de­coder, I’ve been dream­ing of see­ing my­self on my favourite tele­vi­sion chan­nel. Best of all, tal­ent shows, es­pe­cially those that give South Africans a time to shine, are my thing! “I love, love, love The Voice. “There is a very spe­cial ca­ma­raderie among the coaches, host and tal­ent. Ev­ery­one does their best to make ev­ery­one else look and feel good. It’s friendly, it’s warm, it’s me.”

Dur­ing the blind au­di­tions, Mdoda will be in the wings to ex­pe­ri­ence the tal­ent’s big mo­ment with their friends and fam­ily.

M-Net’s head of pub­lic­ity, Lani Lom­bard, said: “Anele has an ex­tra­or­di­nary gift to make any­one feel at ease. We’re hon­oured to be work­ing with her on The Voice South Africa.

“She can chat up a storm, she’s a good lis­tener and she makes peo­ple laugh – and shed a tear – with­out even try­ing.

“And she’s spunky and fun. She does it one way, and that’s the Anele Mdoda way.”

Mdoda presents The 947 Break­fast Club.

She started her ca­reer as a ra­dio DJ at the Uni­ver­sity of Pre­to­ria in 2004.

She had stints on sev­eral re­al­ity shows, in­clud­ing Mzansi Magic’s Clash of The Choirs, SA’s Got Tal­ent and Strictly Come Danc­ing.

The Sea­son 3 coaches will be an­nounced next week.
