Carol Manana
Carol Manana
A class Act!

Award Winning Television Presenter, MC, Radio Presenter, Scriptwriter and Voice Artist.

South Africa’s top female celebrities vied for the job of MC for the FIFA preliminary draw on the 4th December 2009, but the classy and dynamic Carol Manana was the obvious choice, with the rest of the world watching!  And, she did SA proud! Radio and press raved about her performance. 

Carol is the only female soccer anchor in South Africa, presenting the live Premier soccer league matches on SABC1 “Laduma.”  She hosts "SABC1 Sport"  every Saturday afternoon and is a household name in sporting circles.

She began broadcasting in 2000 on the youth sports programme "Sportsbuzz," which appears to be a good training ground for our new-look female sports dynamos. Within a year Carol Manana was a field reporter for the soccer show "Soccer Special" and broke with tradition when she became the first  female sports anchor with "Mabaleng", previously hosted by the great Robert Marawa and Martin Locke.

Apart from Sport, Carol presents  the game show "Yebo Millionaires" on SABC1.

In radio, Carol moved from Kaya fm, where she compiled and presented daily sports bulletins for the breakfast show, to Radio 2000 as anchor of "Beyond the Game" the first dedicated drive time sports show in SA.

Although soccer is the big thing right now, Carol has made a name for herself reporting on sports around the board. She has covered Comrades,  City to City marathons, the Durban July Handicap,  the world Karate Cup, two Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Commonwealth Games in Australia and, of course, the 2006 Soccer World Cup in Germany.

It goes without saying that Carol Manana is the new hot property in MC circles! Some prestigious MC jobs include the 46664 Nelson Mandela aids concert, All Africa Games and Blue I.Q.

A professionally made corporate video can provide a platform for companies to communicate a message, demonstrate a product in action or express techniques and ideas to staff in an interesting and dynamic way. Corporate videos can do all of this for a fraction of the cost, as the film becomes a contained medium through which a company's message or product becomes accessible to a wider audience in a shorter period of time. more info »
