Top Television Host, Author and Medical Doctor
Michael Mol didn’t go for career counseling, which could explain why he’s a medical doctor, an executive producer & presenter, a health tech-preneur and founder of Hello Doctor, global speaker, author and most recently CEO of TruthTV. A trauma doctor turned TV presenter, Michael traded the emergency room for the small screen and anchored Top Billing for more than a decade, scooping up several critically acclaimed awards along the way.
He melded his passion for medicine and media and produced two TV series: “Hello Doctor” and “The Dr. Mol Show.” Watched by over a million people weekly, the show was part of a bigger vision to give every South African access to personal, affordable and quality healthcare through immediate access to doctors via their mobile phones. That vision became a reality with “Hello Doctor” – a mobile digital healthcare company, giving anyone access to a doctor anytime, anywhere, on any phone, in any language.
In November 2020, he launched a new venture called TruthTV – South Africa’s first subscription video on demand service focusing on Faith & Family entertainment with a vision to rekindle wholesome societal values.
Michael is an Oxford Alumni, a South African Brand ambassador and has just written and released “Apples of Gold” – his second book on health and wellbeing on the back of his first best-seller “Your Best Life.” He speaks to audiences around the world and has been recognized as one of the South Africa’s top business speakers with a Hall of Fame distinction.
Michael lives in Cape Town, South Africa with his wife Jacqui, their three children: Josh (21), Rachael (18) and Naethan (13) and is no longer on the safe side of 50.
