TLC Entertainment (DStv channel 172) will launch TLC’s Next Great Presenter on Sunday, 9 August.

Calling all TLC super fans! TLC Entertainment (DStv channel 172) has announced the launch date for TLC’s Next Great Presenter, the channel’s campaign to find its first local presenter.

The campaign to uncover a local TLC host will kick off on Sunday, 9 August, calling for all TLC super-fans from across Africa who believe they have what it takes to be the next Buddy, Oprah or Randy and crowned TLC’s Next Great Presenter.

“We are thrilled to announce the launch date for this fantastic campaign which will see one lucky winner get the chance to present a brand new show on TLC,” said Lee Hobbs. “We know how vocal our TLC fans are and I’m certain we’ll get a tremendous response when the competition officially opens on 9 August and look forward to receiving all the brilliant entries.”

The search for TLC’s Next Great Presenter will begin with the channel asking viewers to submit video clips of their presenting skills, explaining why they should be chosen. A panel of experts will whittle down a shortlist, but it will be up to the TLC viewers to choose the lucky winner.

The winner will get the chance to present TLC Top 10 – a brand new series coming to TLC later this year, which celebrates the biggest and most popular shows that have broadcast on the channel since it launched in Africa in 2011.

Further details as to how to enter TLC’s Next Great Presenter competition will be announced closer to the launch date. Keep watching TLC and join the conversation on our TLC Facebook and Twitter pages to find out more.
