@sharkky Sad to say but it is true that being nice looking helps sales.  Rick is getting up there in years, as we all are.  It would be nice to have a few more younger male hosts.


Agree with you both and yet most recent hires are younger women, many of whom are, to me, not particularly gifted as hosts.

I'm sorry to hear this; I enjoyed Nancy.  Maybe she can get a job with JTV.

I am sorry to see her go, and thinking also of the thousands of others losing jobs at this time.

[ Edited ]

I had to look up her pic under Meet the Hosts. I no longer keep track of the hosts.

I know the older hosts, like Leah, Rick and David. But there seems to be a revolving door for hosts lately,

IMO, QVC should get rid of all the hosts and let the vendors present their product, cut prices and free s/h.

Re: Nancy Hornback is leaving QVC

All three networks are shedding older hosts.  Maybe they think new and fresh and cheaper people is the answer to declining sales.

Re: Nancy Hornback is leaving QVC

I had a feeling this was going to happen since her on-air time had been drastically cut lately.

not sure about that, look who they put on during weekends and evenings (traditionally higher viewer #s I think). David JT, etc 

 

the younger ones not so much

It doesn't sound like it was her decision. I think after the pandemic QVC has had to make cuts. I think Nancy has been here for 12 years. I am not surprised after Q2 folded there wasn't room for her really. She seems like a nice lady.

@JONNYSBRO I am shocked - are you not going to suggest that now there is room for LR to come back?
