she has the announcement on her facebook page.

 

she did say she would be creating a new fb account and instagram page.

Yes.  I will miss Jill but of course wish her well.  She sounds very peaceful over it.

I hate to say but I think over the next year, several other longtime (i.e older) show hosts will be leaving "to spend time with my family".  QVC is passing the baton to the next generation.  They have to put younger faces on air if they want to attract a younger, as in 30's and 40's, customer.

I know exactly what Jill is saying.  There doesn't have to be anything drastic or bombastic, it's just a knowing when it's time.  I had the same feeling at 55 and retired in March of last year.  Never looked back, no regret - it was time and the right decision.  I'm excited for her.

She has made her money, now time to smell the roses.
