Is Chris Scanlon still hosting at HSN?

I just read that Chris Scanlon isn't with HSN anymore. Is that true? What happened? Did she leave on her own?

It was posted here last week that her hubby who is a ski instructor, got a job in Colorado.

Nobody leaves without any notice unless they are let go. She was listed in the program guide one minute and gone the next. Plus there were no goodbye parties.

Chris was programmed to be on air today. Fios TV has the following program description for the show on air RIGHT NOW (11PM East):

CHEF TODD ENGLISH

"Host Chris Scanlon is joined by noted celebrity chef Todd English, who showcaases his line of Mediterrenean-inspired cookware, appliances and..."

Sounds to me like she was fired (or quit) quite suddenly. It must not have amicable.

I found the original thread from last week. Apparently they let Alicia Perez go, too.

Does anybody know why Chris was let go? I feel so bad about this! Chris was always my favorite host on HSN. I can't understand why she would be let go after 21 years there! Anybody?

I started a thread either last week or the week before when I noticed she was gone from the host page and from the drop down host list. She was scheduled to be on air last week as well and still listed in the on-line program guide but then her name was pulled.

I looked at her FB page just to see if she posted anything and someone on it claimed that Chris did say on air that her husband had been working as a ski instructor in Colorado and she and the kids were moving out there as they had been going back and forth. I rarely saw Chris hosting anymore so I have no idea if that was true or not.

Maybe Chris didn't want any good-bye. Maybe they did something privately because that's what she wanted. I do think it's odd though that someone that has been on air as long as she has wouldn't make some type of announcement to the viewers.

I thought I also saw on a thread (perhaps the one you started, Queen), where one of the posters said Chris was "escorted out of the building and was not allowed back in even to go to her office or say goodbye". This poster said she personally knew someone that worked at HSN. I don't know it that's true or not, but I wish her and her family the best. I liked Chris. (HEY SPEEDY, hope you are doing great)!

I liked Chris, hope it was her chosing, but it doesn't sound like it from what I am reading on this thread

I remember watching Chris one day on air about 2 or 3 years ago and her cell phone starting ringing... She reached under the desk and picked it up, told her kid not to call her now, and then hung up and turned off the phone. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes.

She always struck me as a bit of a dim bulb.

I liked Chris. She & Colleen were my favorites.

I don't care for Diana or Callie.

Remember when Shannon used to wear gobs of eye makeup & an entire tube of lip gloss? Then, one day, she just stopped.

I know this is late but I have been puzzled for months and did not hear much about this

I agree no one leaves without notice unless they are let go!

Same with Alan Skantz the coin guy

it seems like corporations can not be honest with their customers now days they treat the viewer as those they are the nobodies!

She is no longer there. She just celebrated her 20 years with them. I do not think they renewed her contract.

Maybe her husband accepted a job there at the last minute & there wasn't time to plan any kind of party.

I doubt she got fired as she was there a long time.

With this economy I don't think she would quit for her husband's lower paying ski instructor job. HSN is cleaning house and want a different type of host.

I really miss Chris! She was one of my favorite hosts on HSN. I would like to know what happened, but I hope she is happy and doing well!

Then why didn't they also get rid of Bobbi Ray Billie Sue Carter?

I agree.

I think she was terminated and HSN made her sign an agreement to keep quiet.

Why would you fire someone & then ask them to keep quiet about it? What would be the point?

I liked Chris Scanlon a lot. She seemed very sweet and did her job well. I had noticed in the last couple of years that her role kept diminishing. I'll miss her on the Perlier (Italian Bath & Body) shows.....

Money.

Why on earth would HSN care whether or not people knew she was fired?

Most people who get fired don't get paid money not to tell anyone.

For the same reason QVC doesn't like people to know when hosts are terminated.

And most people who are fired are not on television working for a network that promotes wholesome values with your shopping experience.
