Re: QVC Has Hired FIVE New Hosts

Why?

They have hosts who never see the light of day who should get a chance to shine.

Or they send them Q2  Siberia like wonderful Alberti. Sigh...they have no idea what they are doing.

Re: QVC Has Hired FIVE New Hosts

I don't watch live QVC anymore and don't even recognize the new ones.  And as far as QVC 2... we don't get it.  Comcast in our area does not carry it....

This is JMO, based on what I've observed on Q2. Whether it's intentional or not (and I suspect that it is, to some extent), each time I've tuned to Q2 in passing and/or to watch for a few mins), the hosts I've seen "consigned" to the channel are the softer-spoken, calmer, less frenetic ones. Yes, on the repeat shows mainstream hosts will appear regardless, but on the "new" shows they seem to be gathering the softer-sell hosts more, including Alberti on IQ. The new hosts could be meant for these channels, but they could also be meant for mainstream QVC so that longertime hosts who hate the mile-a-minute machine gun attitude they're supposed to project now can migrate to the other channels if they want to. Less $$ probably, at least initially, but far less having to be something you're not, and hate forcing yourself to be.

 

Just an observation.

I agree. They program the same handful of them ad nauseum... What do they need with more...

Here too, we get HSN2 on Comcast, but not Q2 or Plus or Beauty or whatever they are called.

According to Rick Dolmier(sp), 5 new QVC hosts have been hired.  He said they are in training right now and will be on air soon.

 

I guess they are serious about these new channels.


I noticed on Q2 all day yesterday, Q2 showed Skechers, the same Skechers with Courtney (previously recorded) about 24 hours.

New channels, new hosts, what would be nice would be new vendors and new products.


I tuned in yesterday about 6:00 to Q2 and it was live programming. Sharon was the host.  It was an hour of Skechers, an hour of Tracfone and another hour of Skechers. 

 

I think Q2 is live every night during the week from 6 to midnight and they have some weekly shows.   

 

I don't know how they decide which hosts go where.  I've seen Jayne, Rachel, Antonella, Rick, Dan Wheeler, Jennifer Coffey, Sandra, Sharon, Gabrielle and Amy live on both Q and Q2.  Leah has a weekly PMStyle show on Q2 and Gabrielle has a weekly AMStyle show. Nancy seems to be relegated to Q2 only and Courtney seems to go back and forth between Beauty IQ and Q2 but is she ever on Q's main channel anymore.  

 

About the only hosts I've never seen live on Q2 are Shawn, Jill, Jane and MaryBeth.
