Courtney Cason, the QVC beauty and fashion show host, is leaving the shopping channel after 10 years. She announced she was quitting in a post to Instagram yesterday.
Cason, who is known for hosting QVC’s Beauty IQ program, recalled the day she came for an interview at the QVC headquarters in the West Chester suburb of Philadelphia.
While hurrying to make it to West Chester, she lost her license at the airport and had to rent a car.
She said she was surprised that QVC hired her after what she described as a “far from perfect interview.”
“When I think back to that time, I smile and shake my head because who knew that one day of imperfect instances would shape my future and become my home away from home for the next ten years.”
She then went on to talk about her experiences during her years at QVC, including getting married and becoming pregnant with a baby boy.
“To you, our amazing viewers… You have seen me meet the love of my life, get married, re-do an old house, and lastly followed me on this journey to become pregnant with our angel baby boy… thank you for all of the memories and crazy fun times these last 10 years.”
She did not reveal details about what she planned to do after QVC, but she indicated she was quitting to focus on her family life and “adventures ahead.”
QVC is a shopping channel founded by Joseph Segel in 1986. It is owned by Qurate Retail Group.
