Re: What HSN hosts might exit due to the merger?

I would hardly call Amy Morrison the "star" of HSN. Ridiculous!

You seem to see things differently than everyone else most if the time!🤔

There could just as easily be a mass exit at QVC.  IMO they will not be able to continue to pay the hosts exhorbitant salaries if they aren't doing well.   HSN is doing fine, it's QVC that is losing sales.

Actually, that's not true.  According to Financial Times today, in 2016, QVC’s revenue was flat at $8.7billion while HSN’s revenue dropped 3% to $3.5bn.

It might be kind of like how Marshalls and TJ Maxx are. I would love to see Shannon Smith cross over to QVC.

 

NO!! Keep her there.

@Pancho  I believe you're correct.  I don't even know who Amy is.  I've never seen her.  Love Colleen!  She's been their star forever!


 

Colleen is their best host over there, as well as Bill Green. He went mainly behind the scenes now. I miss him.

Re: What HSN hosts might exit due to the merger?

There is zero reason to assume it's any type of "merger."

 

The company that owns QVC bought HSN. Procter & Gamble and General Mills own many different food companies. They don't all sell the same products or operate the same way. Large nationwide restaurant chains don't all serve the same kinds of food.

 

Most parent companies usually don't merge such that one chain disappears, except for department stores.

 

I hope the OP isn't devastated by this.

Actually HSN and the Q have had slidiing sales for years.
