I didn't know where to post this but I was just curious as to what happened to Dave James?

He is no longer with the Q. I don't think it was a voluntary exit. A great host! Last edited on 7/6/2013

Dave James has left the Q building....hope all is well with him and his family. I believe Dave was the BEST host that the Q had, but did not make the most of his talents. He was not a pushy salesman and perhaps that is not what the Q requires of their hosts....who knows. I miss him and wish him the best.

Yes James was a lovely host. I guess the Q only wants the irritating trashy type?

He left abruptly. He was on on a Thursday, said I will be on again this weekend and we never saw him again. On his host page on a Friday he said he was not coming back, and that is all we know.

I just saw him as a host on ShopNBC this morning.

I believe you are thinking of Dave King

I see Dave King is pictured in the host lineup on ShopNBC. Perhaps Dave is trying out for a spot. I loved watching both these hosts when they were on QVC. Shame the good ones are leaving or being forced out.

I am shocked. Dave was a plesant change from the high powered, talk all the time and say noithing hosts. My hope is he will find work doing that he enjoys...A viewers loss for sure. Now...how about Nancy ?? Frm the start she seemed unprofessional and inexperienced, nothing has changed. She bursts into song for no reason, can't speak for more than a minute or two without making no sense at all. I usually turn her off because I get frustrated that the O doesn't value our time more than they do. Can't say I have ever bought anything she presented, I am too distracted by all her mistakes. Sorry, I'm sure she is a lovely person, but totally annoying. Keep her overnight, I've seen her sneaking into early moring with Pat, don't force me to keep the TV off until 10 a.m.

I love Nancy and think she has improved tremendously. She just may be my favorite host. She's genuine without any of the "Madison Avenue airs". She's funny, doesn't interrupt guests and does an especially good job on jewelry shows. I'd rather watch her than many others who come to mind.

You could be right about a hobby. I never gave that a thought. When he left, I too thought he wanted to make his passion for photography a full-time job. We may never know.

At least they let Dave post a goodbye message (which QVC reposted on their FB page). Unlike the infamous Bob Bowersox hostage video.

Sure will miss you Dave. Congratulations on your successful photography business. God Bless!

Dave was very down to Earth without being pushy and rude (the new norm - just look at poster boy Rick). I love David on his cooking show, but even he gets annoying (glad someone told him to limit his freaky "happy dance"), but if Rick is subbing for him like he did this past week while David is on vacation, I refuse to watch. If Rick is presenting a TSV I am interested in, I will not order it until someone else is on so he does not get credit for the sale.

I'm not a good sleeper anymore, so I reallly enjoyed seeing Dave James at night when I was awake. He was a very good host - no hard sell, pleasant and knowledgeable. I guess the fact that he was such a good host accounts for the reason he is gone. Not the type that the suits want these days. It's all about the hard sell and the computer integration.

He has an actual physical photography studio near West Chester so I'd think it was more than a hobby. With the situation the way it is, let's hope it becomes more successful.

I miss him. I hope he is doing okay. We may never know the explanation of what happened. many people are blaming Pat, but I doubt she has that kind of pull.

Perkup1373224543.0736080 PostsRegistered 12/24/2008

I'm just sorry that I don't live near there - I would definitely find some reason to have some nice photo made.

I hope that those of you who do live nearby will find any excuse for new photos of their family. I'd like to see his photo studio become a major success.

I never understood that. Just people reading what they want into a situation. Seems to me Pat loves everybody. With what has happened to some lately the hosts are all on pins and needles trying to keep jobs and wouldn't be so mean as to have someone fired.

One can only hope. We may never know what happened to Dave. What we do know it was NOT by choice, this came as a total surprise to him. So sad.

Didn't realize Dave was gone, I remember when he started with Carolyn Gracie and Antonella Nester, they were parts of a Q hosting audition search. The was another hostess(can't remember her name) who started about the same time and who was there for only a short time.

Dave James and QVC model Stacy are on a Casino Resorts ad on the internet. It is a casino in NY City. I saw it today online. I know for sure that was the two of them as I have watched them for a long time on QVC.
