@Pyrite2616 QVC's 37th Birthday celebration was back in June.

@MezzieStarrI guess they were celebrating early because QVC's 37th Birthday is today. QVC's Birthday Week is November 18-24.

I found this info on line:

 

"QVC celebrates its Birthday Month in June, as June 1986 was when Joe Segel founded the company. The first broadcast was later, in November."

@Pyrite2616 Wow! Where did you find an internet post from 1998?  (I was a teenager! 😂)

 

Was there even a QVC website in the 90s?

 

I've only known the Q to celebrate their birthday in June. 

 

HSN has theirs in July.

 

You can put your birthday hat and noisemaker away, you'll only be getting Black Friday celebration these days.

 

Woman LOL

@MezzieStarr 

 

That's a scan from the November 1998 QVC Insider Magazine.

 

QVC's website launched on September 15, 1996.

 

QVC celebrated their Birthday on November 24 up until 2008. They waited a few years for people to forget and then started celebrating it in June, thus cancelling Founder's Day, which is June 13th.

@MelzieYou found that "info" from Johnny Eager. He is not a credible source.

I don't know who Johnny Eager is but the info seems to be accurate as it's in more than one place.  Founded in June and first airing in November. 

 

Found this elsewere on line also:

"The channel was launched on November 24, 1986, with program hosts Kathy Levine, John Easman, Ellen Langas, Bob Bowersox, and Cindy Briggs-Moore. Each

November 24, QVC celerated their birthday annually through 2008."

 

I was only trying to pass on info as to why there might be confusion with the two different "birthday" dates.
