Thread regarding QVC layoffs

Which QVC and HSN hosts are leaving in layoffs?

Qurate (NASDAQ: QRTEA) disclosed on Tuesday it was letting go roughly 400 employees in a round of layoffs as part of the turnaround plan known as "Project Athens." The layoffs impact QVC, HSN and its corporate shared services teams in the U.S. Longtime QVC on-air hosts Carolyn Gracie and Dan Hughes both took to Facebook to announce they are no longer with the network. Gracie called her departure from QVC after 19 years "bittersweet." She is known for hosting the QVC shows "Garden Party with Carolyn" and "Denim & Co." Hughes, who spent more than 30 years at QVC, also expressed appreciation for viewers in his announcement, saying "all good things must come to an end." Hughes hosted "The Great Outdoors with Dan," "Trending on Q," "At Home with Dan" and "Sunday Morning with Pat and Dan" with cohost Pat James DeMentri.
At sister station HSN, Shannon Smith, host of "Shannon's in the Kitchen," announced Wednesday that she is no longer with the network. Smith had been at HSN for more than 27 years. Shannon Fox also said on Facebook that she closed the door on her "9 year adventure as a host at HSN."
