Re: Newer Hosts

[ Edited ]

Was looking for Susan Graver's bomber jacket and Alex Butler was on the video with a stand-in for Susan. Thank goodness, together Susan and Alex together would have cancelled each other out!

I have said it before and will say it again--Alex Butler is unwatchable.  The language, again "wowza" galls me, the domination of the floor and presentation is more than this viewer can handle.  This tentative-host is without doubt the worst I have ever seen.....and just will not watch her again, even if I am interested in a item in which she dominates the video.  Just awful!

The newbies will either sink or swim.  Starting a new job, as most of us know, is very stressful and intimidating and scary sometimes until we've been there a while and start feeling like we know what we're doing.  That being said, I do wish that the Q had looked at finding hosts that were more mainstreamed middle America.  There are most definitely some "seasoned" hosts that I don't care to watch and simply turn down the volumne.  I'm somewhere between 50 & 60, so  guess I'm over cutesy tootsie hosts that talk too fast or ramble on.  A recent seasoned host was so busy applying lip gloss throughout the show that it was ridiculous!  I am a huge Dooney fan and record all the Q's shows.  Dooney's younger host doesn't come across to me as a true Dooney girl.  She looks like more of the LV, Michael Kors, etc. type.  But she's young, pretty and blonde so that's what matters when it comes to marketing.

@DianeFM    No one, but no one can present a Dooney&Bourke bag like Sue Clifton, she truly is the one and only D&B dynamo.  No one else can do D&B justice......

I will say one thing, the new group of hosts have saved me money! I've been changing the channel quite a bit.

I feel Katey Mcgee is one of the best...she keeps her voice low and no sillyness with her. I first saw here in early morning hours and couldn't believe how well she presented everything and as a new host....

I'm not going to bash or make a negative comment on any of the host.

Katie McGee, while not one of the newest ones, is AMAZING. I love everything about her demeanor and how she presents. What a jewel.

 

And Mary Nelson may be one of  the VERY BEST HIRES the Q has made in a while.

She is a class act!

I absolutely agree with Castlenv.  When the new hosts come on I turn the TV off.  They are a waste of my time and patience.  Unprofessional and loud.

completely agree-very disappointed in new hosts except Mary Nelson and Courtney.  The new ones remind me of Stacy Stouffer who also lack professionalism.
