ANYONE SEEN SHIVAN SARNA LATELY?
OR IS YET ANOTHER CASUALTY OF THE HSN “CHOPPERS”? I REALLY LIKE THAT CLASSY LADY.
I’m not sure what HSN is thinking in terms of their mix of hosts and how they schedule them. They seem to be going after some mythical “younger demographic” that I doubt will materialize in the way they hope. Meanwhile, they give short shrift to the bulk of their customer base. Not smart!
Helen Keaney is the greatest untapped talent at HSN. She’s entertaining to watch and can relate to their customers in a way that many hosts can’t. What do they do with her? Put her on at 2 a.m. Again, not smart! As I’ve posted in the past, she should be put through selling boot camp by Bill Green and given her own show tailored to her unique personality and talents. I’ve also previously observed that Bill Green is the top salesperson from a technical standpoint and as such should be involved in training others. Well, he’s doing that now, and while I will miss him on-air he should be helping Helen Keaney to be all she can be. I rarely see her because she’s on overnight.
Mistake #2 is putting Tamara Hooks on overnight. She’s a terrific host and has all the selling skills down pat. What a waste of talent.
I saw her selling pearls on Tuesday. She is one of my favorites also.
THANKS. I HOPE THAT’S ALL IT IS. I WISH HER WELL.
During the 4 PM show today Adam said he was filling in for her. I think he said she wasn’t feeling well.
