Hello QVC!


Hello everyone, Miceal here. I know, I know, my name has probably flumuxed a few of you already but being Irish, having a strange name goes with the territory I'm afraid! If you're trying to figure out how its pronounced, the best thing I can say is to try 'ME-HALL'.

Well now that we've got that out of the way, I have to say that, being a big fan of shopping and TV, I couldn't be happier knowing that I am going to be part of the QVC family.

I know it sounds like a bit of a cliche, but having met a lot of the team here at QVC, as well as some you at our Food Fair back in December, I have been made to feel so welcome and supported and it genuinely feels like I'm part of one big family.

Some of you may have seen me on QVC last year in my capacity as a chocolatier representing Duc d'O Chocolates but what you may not know is that I have been working as a TV presenter in Ireland for a number of years so it's going to feel great being back on air.

Right now I'm looking forward to my first shows and everyone has been promising to look after me – see, it really is like family. It would be great to have your company and it would be lovely to hear from you all, so feel free to get in touch with any questions or comments.

In the meantime, here's to good times and great shopping!

Miceal. x

    Hey Miceal!
    Welcome to the QVC blogging fold! I already feel that we’re pretty good buddies as we’ve had plenty of fun chats together off air but when I saw your blog was up and live I wanted to be one of the first to say how delighted I am that you’ve joined us. You have a huge heart and the warmest of personalities. Great to have you on board!
    I look forward to future blogs with a focus on chocolate, too! I’m sure you’ve a recipe or two up your sleeve for us.
    See you on the morning show next week!
    Love Catherine x

    Thank you everyone for all of your kind comments. It feels so great to be here at QVC.
    It has all been a little hectic since I arrived. I almost feel like I live here at QVC I have been here so much, but thats an ok feeling because everyone is genuinely like family so am happy to be ‘living’ with them!
    There is so much to learn, see, do, everyday. I couldn’t be happier.
    Apologies that it has taken me so long to reply to your welcome comments but I have to admit that even though I graduated with a degree in computers, it was about 20 years ago and technology has more or less passed me by since then!
    I have to be honest with you, this is the first time I have ever blogged. So please bear with me as I find my feet.
    I have had so many ‘firsts’ since I started at QVC. First time I have worked at a Shopping Channel, first time I went on air at QVC, first time I did The Morning Show, first time I work with each of the other presenters, first TSV lauch (which was just last night), first time I have ever blogged……. the list goes on.
    Please bear with me while I find my feet and get into a rhythm. In the meantime, please know that I am really happy to have received your lovely comments and warm welcomes and I hope we can continue to get to know each other over the coming months and years.

    Hi Michael
    Wishing you the warmest welcome, you are such a natural, and a plesure to watch even if i am not really interested in the item for sale. It’s your personality, but that’s why you have this job, you’re warm, interesting, funny and just a ‘real’ person (which as a viewer, it’s so much better when a presenter is genuine). You fitted into QVC straight away good luck for the future

    Hi Miceal
    Good to see another male presenter on QVC. Have seen you on screen a couple of times and you look very much at home. Can’t believe you are nearly 40 – you look a lot younger – lucky you! Saw you on TV last Saturday – really liked your haircut and you have a great smile.
    All the best for the future on QVC.

    Hi Greg, Penni and Sarah,
    Thanks so much for yuor comments.
    Sarah, I am not so sure whether I am fun to work with or just a bit cheeky! Either way I think its really important to enjoy your work!
    Penni thanks for the compliment and the warm welcome. I like to hope I come across naturally. So great to hear back from you, as a viewer.
    Hey Greg, its great being on QVC and I am loving it. Unfortunately it is true that I am nearly 40 (in June), but you know what age is just a number!! Thanks again for your best wishes.
    Hope you all keep checking in with my blogs and we all get to know each other better over the coming months and years.
