Past Hosts

It would be intersting if we could know what past hosts are doing now and post a picture of them then and now. I've been watching for 20 years and every now and then I wonder what some of the pasts hosts are up to.

Why not just Google their name?

This one goes way back - Judy Krohl (not sure of the spelling) is doing an infomercial for a bra. She was a great host. Still looks the same. It was good to see her.

He just joined Shop NBC.....

I always wonder the same thing. I know Judy Crowell and Paul Desey got married and then left QVC. The both worked for HSN as hosts, then switched to ShopNBC. Paul does great work as a gem designer. I bought one of his rings recently and was excited. I think Judy had a clothing line on ShopNBC also. So many hosts have come and gone.....we need updates!!!!

Paul Kelly (tall, "gentle giant" ) who used to do all the tours thru out the US is also over at the northern channel now as well as Dave King. Strange how Bob just disappeared from the Q... Seemed that way to me...

Will always miss Kathy Levine... she was the best... informative and entertaining... & Judy Crowell...

Anyone remember Steve Coluntuno? He was a host way back and always wore that BIG BOLD initial ring that had QVC carved on it...

Steve Bryant (KL's ex beau)

Victor Velez Sheila Johnson Toni Price (married a Q exec) Molly (??) who loved country music and was a musician...

Any other hosts you remember??

Most of the ones who left abruptly did not leave on happy terms. They either quit or were fired. Very few left with a party- only one comes to mind- Kathy Levin. Pretty much it was here one day gone the next. I really doubt they are going to fill anyone in on past hosts since most of them are either working on the competitors sites- home shopping or Shopnbc. It appears that non of them can find work else where other than being a barker for the circus. Then there are the few that leave to make their fortune and come back( how embarressing!) because they can not make it. Hold their heads in shame!

How about Larry Muzzy Sir......from down south............

Malia985321279450627.6629 PostsRegistered 2/18/2010

Kendy Kloepfer was on Q back in the day..

I see she's been on ShopNBC for awhile now..

I didn't even recognize her when i first saw her.

but then again it's been YEARS..and she's had kids too..

when she was on the Q she had hosted alot of the fitness shows and

also fashion shows..Her final show on Q was "Monday Morning Fashions"

I remember because I made myself get up 2 hrs early just to watch because I didnt have a VHS tape to tape it.

Laurie Shore was on today hawking Mrs. Prindables apples as a Mrs. Prindables spokeswoman. She looked great! She was always the sweetest, most genuine host. I loved watching her. It was good to see her again and see she is still her sweet self. That smile...

ITA---those who are on air today, never to be seen again--- fired or not, have their contract renewed w/compatible terms re both sides are gone.

The PC response from all companies when asked about this or that employee is "they left to pursue other interests.

I've seen Judy Crowell several times on Shop NBC and Paul Deasy too. I'd love to know where Christa Pitts has been..she was such a sweetie. And Lynn whose last name i can't remember..blonde very sweet..

Kim Parrish has a clothing line on HSN or at least she used to.

I saw Kathy when she first bought LaVintage on, but i don't like the line..sorry to anyone who does.

Dave King works on shop nbc also.

Last year when the economy took a dip, QVC as well as most businesses had to re-vamp.

Bob Bowersox was a Sr. host and with his other interests he personally stepped down so that other hosts would not have to be let go. He did this not because he had to...he did so because his financial interests were secure and he knew some of the younger hosts had families to support.

A very considerate gesture considering most people would not do this. But, Bob has apparently done well in life with his gifted cooking. If you recollect, Bob was pretty much just doing the cooking show on Sundays. He didn't leave because he was retiring from work. He just retired from this company, and it would be my assumption he had other interests he wanted to pursue with family and cooking without the rigors of 24 hour broadcasting.

There was an article written about this by Bob and I can't honestly recollect where I read it, but it was not something generated by QVC.

Marc Rowe was a former host and hosts shows on TLC and did some infomercials; Susan Runyon is now on HSN; Judy Crowell is on ShopNBC; Lynn Murphy had her own show; Steve Bryant wasa with Ron Popiel when they did his promos; Jeffrey Hewson was married briefly to Judy Crowell who is now married to Paul Deasey, formerly of HSN and those mentioned by others. I am certain there are many more who no longer are with the Q.

Anyone remember Suzanne Runyon? I saw her on another shopping network awhile back...can't remember which one.
