Bob is back

Another QVC alum has found his way to ShopNBC.

Former QVC host Bob Bowersox, who used to date ex-QVC host Kathy Levine, will be on ShopNBC Thursday at midnight, 4 a.m., 12 p.m. and 4 p.m, in the “Around the Kitchen” show series.

He will be appearing as a “guest expert,” according to the No. 3 home shopping network. He will offer his cooking and kitchen appliance expertise.

ShopNBC describes Bowersox, who abruptly disappeared from QVC some time ago, as as “actor, voiceover artist, screenwriter, playwright, novelist, poet, singer, songwriter, and national television network personality.”

What ShopNBC fails to mention is that Bowrsix “was a national television network personality” via his tenure at QVC. But ShopNBC does call Bowersox “a home shopping favorite.”

Former QVC host Dave King is also now over at ShopNBC, as a host.

Bowersox will be hawking a Sharper Image Super Wave Oven. “Designed to cook your food up to three times faster than a conventional oven, with up to 80% less energy, customers will learn how this unique product will transform their time in the kitchen,” we’re told.
