Longtime QVC host, Sharon Faetsch, appeared on TV for the last time on November 21, 2018, after she announced her retirement. The cheerful host who’s been associated with the home shopping channel for over 15 years says she quit because she was missing out on her kids growing up.
Consider this a tribute to Sharon and her work on QVC! She is a very entertaining and warm personality who will be missed on TV, but that’s not the end of her just yet. Sharon has promised to continue interacting with her fans through social media, and suggested that they follow her on her new account when she announced her retirement.
Here are some facts to know about Sharon Faetsch, along with details on what she’s planning next.
Sharon Faetsch Joined QVC in 2003
Did you know that Faetsch worked at the Excalibur Hotel Casino in Las Vegas as Queen Guinevere before QVC?
She joined Paramount Parks in Sin City back in 1998, and her next job was at QVC, where she began working in 2003.
On the show, Faetsch was known for her sweet and warm persona, and her great sense of humor.
She has hosted and helped sell thousands of products on TV, and when you’re in it for over a decade, you know you did something right.
Why Did Sharon Leave QVC?
When she first announced that she would be leaving the show, fans of the host were taken aback. But the decision probably wasn’t an impromptu one for Sharon. As many know, she is a doting wife and mother, and while her job was very important to her, she felt that she was missing out on being a mom to her two kids.
“At 11 and 9 years old, my kids certainly aren’t getting any younger, and I want to spend more time just being a mom. QVC has been such a wonderful place to work and I will always remember the amazing time that I spent here. My last show will be on Wednesday, November 21st,” she wrote on Facebook.
She was known for all the food shows she filmed over the years, and her costars all spoke about her in a final goodbye video.
You can find the video on her official Facebook account.
