It's not everyday that I see a well dressed news reader/ anchor on South African tv. For some reason the style bug has not bitten on this side of the news world and that is a source of great concern for me. Style and presentation seem to be sorely lacking. From SABC 1 through to SABC 3 one is, on a daily basis, confronted with poorly dressed individuals reading and presenting the news. SABC News International...? It doesn't get better there either. It is so bad that one evening a reader on SABC 1 news was wearing a bright green shirt. The problem was that the shirt was small. So small that the top two buttons couldn't be buttoned, a little flesh from his upper chest was showing, and the worst, a tie was used to try to hide all that mess. I was incredulous.

Etv is an exception, even though at times it looks like smart-casual dominates. The exception this morning, other than Andrew Barnes everyday at lunch time, was Macfarlane Moleli.

Dressed in a black chalk stripe suit, a white shirt and a beige plaid tie, the brother looked like he had taken a page out of GQ magazine. This was great execution. Even his grooming was top notch.

I sure hope other news readers from other channels can take a bite out of Big Mac's style.
