Bring Back my Bill Green!
Hello, I had to get this off my chest. I have been shopping with HSN since I was 16 with my mommy, now I am 45 and a mother of 2 boys. I consider myself a power shopper and a knowledgeable HSN family member and have watched show hosts come and go. My question is why Bill Green? You still have other ‘seasoned’ show hosts that have been there since the beginning, why move him off air to train or appear sometimes?
I know the job of host is difficult, I could never do it, but I know that Bill was fun, genuine, he had a frame of reference for the products that only a person of his experience would have. He has many experiences, such great stories and I really relied on his opinion when purchasing products. Plus his happy voice, energetic demeanor plus snappy style really helped put me in a good mood. I just miss his professionalism.
As for the new show hosts, they are nervous, a couple of them slur their words out of fright so it is hard to understand them, they almost appear like a deer in headlights on camera. I hate to be judgemental because I do respect them for having the guts to attempt show host, but they make me very uncomfortable watching them. I find myself covering my eyes out of embarrassment for their shaking hands and pitiful vocabulary. They are so young and inexperienced that they don’t seem to know the products, have a frame of reference for history or current events that could help them connect with the audience and in turn sell more product.
Anyway, I will stop bashing them, but I do miss being able to turn on the tv in the background while I work from home to HSN and just listen to the people having fun. I find myself watching less and less of HSN.
I hope HSN didn’t move Bill out for a younger host, because that is not what is needed. You need show hosts like Bill that are dapper, genuine, stylish, and actually having a good time with in depth knowledge on the products, or at least curiosity for the product being shown so they are asking questions from a viewpoint of the audience not just looking at a card and repeating some made-up idea of why this product would be good to purchase. If he didn’t know about the product, he learned about it on air from the expert with us. I loved that about him.
Please HSN, bring back my Bill! He was wonderful with celebrities and interviews when showing their products. Why not a weekly interview sales show hosted by Bill Green? Tuesday’s with Bill, or Celebrity Wednesday with Bill? Obviously I am horrific at show name ideas, but you get the picture. He is a hoot and has a lot of offer besides being put behind the scenes only to show randomly.
Ok, I feel better now, sigh, smile.
Thanks for listening, I guess I should write the network? Probably make it shorter when I do.
Bill reads the boards. Maybe he will reply. I miss him with Joan Boyce. They were great together. HSN should have had him work parttime as a host and parttime as a trainer. Having him disappear all at once is their loss.
Bill is being treated unfairly. Why hide him?
Heck, Bill might be over the department that trains the “host.” That would fit him well because he knows the job well and performs very professional. There was never a show that he hosted that he didn’t look like GQ magazine dresser…sharp looking gentleman. Bet he smells as handsome as he always looked…lol. He may also be cleaning up complaints that people have displayed (on forums) about host’s behavior, teaching them how to act. Whatever it is, we all miss him and I know he knows that. I wish him the BEST in whatever he has decided or will decide.
I would love to see Bill back, I really miss him with Joan Boyce. Hope he is enjoying what he is doing.
I would imagine that Bill doesn’t want to be a ‘show host’ anymore. After all, he’d been doing it forever… a change for him was probably quite welcome.
Also when did Kathy Wolf retire I missed seeing her just this week.When did she leave in July? I don’t know last time I saw her she was doing an Excercise gym.
I agree with JenmomRN bring back Bill Green,he was a fixture on HSN,for years so good at what he sells.He can sell and ice cube to an Eskimo in Alaska.
I hope I don’t see him on QVC or EVINE.
