OK, this really bothers me. Thought I'd share.
There must be some sort of bizarre thing in everyone’s contract at QVC that says the show must go on, BAR NONE.
This poor woman, QVC host Cassie Slane looked to be having a REAL health problem, and instead of cutting away COMPLETELY to a commercial or some sort of emergency music and a logo to get her some help, her co-host kept rambling, and the producers just cut to a close-up shot of the item with the price while they apparently propped her back up and she tried again in vain.
“OK NOW we’ll cut out,” right? Wrong!!! They stayed live, got her off and kept going... eventually replacing her with ANOTHER woman while the guy kept blabbing, not missing a beat!!! What’s wrong with these people??
Apparently Cassie’s OK now by the way, but THEY didn’t know that then!! They must not have, since for the rest of the segment no mention of the woman that just passed out in front of their viewers. So irresponsible!!
Instructionally here: Cassie starts to have issues at 1:30, Comes back at about 3 minutes in, but only makes it to 4:10. Then they stay with him and replace her with a new host at 5:40. That’s how it’s done folks.
I've been in radio since 1981, starting on Cape Cod, and in Boston, Massachusetts where I grew up. (when The Sox and Patriots both broke everyone's hearts, and the Celtics ruled. Funny how things change.)
After 3 years in Las Vegas in the late 80's, early 90's I was looking for work and luckily found myself here in Cleveland in 1991, through some mutual radio friends. I got to play the hits as Jammin 92's Night guy until 1999, and met Britney Spears back when she wasn't making people gag.
After watching my former company screw up the Jammin' Oldies thing for a couple of years, I came to Majic in 2001, the best decision I ever made!
