SAFTA-nominated TV and radio presenter Pabi Moloi was recently announced as the new host of the upcoming season of reality show Presenter Search On 3. The show is aimed at discovering talented and fresh faces that will fit into the style SABC 3 has created with shows like Expresso, Afternoon Express and Top Billing.

We spoke to the talented presenter about it and this is what she had to say:

What is the key to staying relevant in this industry for so long?
I honestly don’t even ruminate over it. I am ever curious and engaged in what is happening in the world. I also make sure I do projects I really like so it is always an authentic self I bring to the screen or speaker.
