Each week The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviews a famous person about her or his attitude to money (hopes and fears, successes and failures, etc.) as part of his weekly “Make Money Mondays” feature.

This week he interviewed Michael Mol, a medical doctor that is most well-known for anchoring Top Billing and Expresso.

Mol – who graduated from the University of Pretoria in 1995 – started his career as a medical doctor with interests in emergency medicine and HIV management.

He won the Mr South Africa title in 1996.

In 1999, despite continuing medicine, he began his stint at Top Billing.

In 2011 Mol started producing and presenting SABC 3’s “Hello Doctor”.
