Connie Craig-Carroll, Two Other Hosts Exit HSN

June 15, 2019

Today was apparently bloody Friday for HSN hosts, with three of them apparently getting pink slips under the network’s new ownership.

Connie Craig-Carroll, who has been a host for nearly 22 years, Robin Wall and Brett Chukerman are all exiting. They each posted the news individually on their Facebook pages.

It’s a pretty big shakeup, but perhaps not unexpected now that HSN is under the ownership of Qurate Retail, parent of QVC. We sympathize, especially with Craig-Carroll. When a company is looking to slash costs, it usually gives veteran employees who are on the top of the pay scale the can. It happened to us twice.

Craig-Carroll left a long goodbye. She pointed out that she had gotten married, had a baby and became a single mom during her tenure at the network, where she has worked since she was 27.

She said she is moving on to her next adventure and will be leaving HSN next month. Craig-Carroll asked people to post their favorite moments or products, and a bevy of HSN vendors lamented her exit.

Chukerman, who has been on HSN for eight years, said he will be departing the network next month as well.

Wall said she had met her husband at HSN nearly 25 years ago, but she has only been a host at the network for 10 years. Her last show is Saturday, June 15, from 4 a.m. to 7 a.m.

“God has always guided my path so I look forward to where it leads next,” she wrote.

Amen to that.
