The Presenter, a reality show to discover and empower young and upcoming talented individuals to be trained as top broadcasters in Nigeria, has debuted.
Tajudeen Dunmoye, the former Associate Producer of The Next Movie Star, a TV reality show with proven record over the years, is the brain behind the project, a wholly indigenous talent discovery show centered on the broadcast industry.
According to Dunmoye â€œin the last few years, broadcasters on television, radio stations and red carpet have been recycled with old faces and presenters. That is why we think it is high time we tookÂ the broadcast industry to the next level.â€
He said the new reality show would be educative and entertaining and above all, rewarding, adding that it would have 12 contestants, six male and six female of different culture, language, talent in news, entertainment, sports, documentaries, comedy, business, talk shows, red carpet presentation and lifestyle. They will spendÂ 21 days in the house, to see who will emerge as The Presenter, come 2011.”
The concept is owned by Nine28 Media Entertainment.
