What in the World Happened To ... Ruda Landman

This week’s #WhatInTheWorldHappenedTo follows up on one of South Africa’s favourite faces, former Carte Blanche anchor, Ruda Landman.

Landman was part of South Africans’ Sunday evenings for 19 years before she left popular current affairs show Carte Blanche in 2007. She joined the Carte Blanche team along with fellow presenter DerekWatts on 21 August 1988, when the late Bill Faure launched the show.

When it was announced that she was leaving Carte Blanche, Landman admitted "I will miss the programme and the people intensely, but it is time to leave the comfort zone and see what's out there."

So what was out there for Landman after Carte Blanche? Her profile on Who’s Who SA says that she is currently a Non-Executive Director at Media 24.

Speaking to Xolani, Landman says that she has been busy with freelance work since her departure from Carte Blanche. She also revealed that she is investing in South Africa’s future through a non-profit organization that she has founded for students, and young people, who cannot afford fees for studies after high school.

She caught up with her first co-presenter Derek Watts 7 years after her departure from the show.
