The show has enjoyed 13 years of air time with host Naoleen Maholwana Sanqu as the sole host, was first reported to be on the chopping block by weekend’s news papers.
The official statement by the SABC reads, “When we started the show, I could never have imagined that we would have such an enduring relationship with viewers. I have had the most fabulous 12 years on 3Talk. 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.”
Though the decision to pull a curtain on the show was a mutual one between Sanqu and the SABC word on the street is the show had been losing viewers and last year the viewership was down to an embarrassing 406 000
3 Talk’s final episode will air on 20 April.
