S3’s Expresso Morning Show, a S3 South African staple of morning television, is delighted to welcome Zanele Potelwa as the newest addition to its hosting team. Zanele’s arrival promises to bring fresh energy and a vibrant presence to the popular breakfast show, enhancing the viewer experience.
Zanele continues to be one of the brightest stars in the local entertainment landscape. As a popular radio presenter and television host, Zanele’s infectious presenting style makes her a perfect fit for S3’s Expresso.
“It’s really great that Zanele is going to add her colourful energy to the Expresso team. It is also encouraging to see a talent groomed by the SABC being given an opportunity on one of S3’s flagship programmes, we wish her all the success together with the show,” David Makubyane, Head: Platforms Video Entertainment at the SABC says.
“When we speak of dreams coming true, working for Cardova and the Expresso Morning Show is exactly that. A few years ago, when Expresso had their presenter search, I didn’t enter, but I still posted a video online of how I would have entered, had I been able to at the time. It has always been something I hoped for and Expresso has always a show I admired,” Zanele fondly recalls. “I can’t believe I get to start this new journey! It’s a huge career highlight getting to be part of many South Africans’ mornings by waking them up in the best way possible, on S3.”
Zanele adds “I’ve always viewed entertainment as a privilege. Every stage is an honour and I hope this dream coming true for me reminds people, especially the youth, that our dreams are valid and blessings delayed are not blessings denied. I’m beyond grateful to God for this amazing opportunity and to the mighty SABC for trusting me and to Cardova for believing in me. I can’t wait to wake up with South Africa on Expresso and also to have lunch with them on the airwaves during my radio show!”
Sane Zondi, Programme Manager of S3 adds “Zanele was a raw talent identified by the SABC on ‘Selimathunzi’ and the power of the network and SABC continues to progress her career on TV and radio. We are happy to see her grow on both platforms.” Maritha Greenland, Commissioning Editor at the SABC says “Zanele will be a welcome addition to the Expresso team.”
Lala Tuku, Head: Local Productions at the SABC concludes, “Zanele’s arrival marks an exciting addition to the Expresso family, and her longstanding association with the SABC only adds to this excitement. It’s exciting to see Zanele crossover between SABC radio and TV channels as she adds her fresh voice to conversations on the platforms. Her vibrant personality and deep-rooted connection to the SABC makes her the perfect fit for this dynamic platform.”
With the addition of Zanele as its newest host, Expresso has revealed that it will now be broadcasting simultaneously from studios in both Cape Town and Johannesburg. The introduction of the Johannesburg studio, a significant milestone in the show’s history, is a testament to the Expresso Morning Show’s commitment to providing fresh and engaging content to its audience.
With dual studios in Cape Town and Johannesburg, Expresso is well-equipped to offer an even more comprehensive view of South Africa. The dual studio format enables the show to feature a broader spectrum of guests, content, and live broadcasts from different regions of the country. It strengthens the program’s connection with metropolitan millennial viewers across the country.
The Expresso Morning Show has been a reliable source of inspiration and entertainment for its viewers, and Zanele Potelwa’s addition to the team alongside it’s brand-new studio space promises to continue this tradition. South African mornings are about to become even more engaging and enjoyable.
