Casino Royale – Children’s Miracle Network Benefit

When it comes to children there is always time for a good cause, and the Casino Royale event put together by the girls at Maven Management was an incredible success! Kirsten Haglund, Miss USA 2008, Kim Parrish and Jen Crawford spent months creating the ambience with the perfect backdrop of Tampa Bay, and a gorgeous sunset, at the Westshore Yacht Club. Many of Tampa Bay’s A-List celebrities were on hand with a combination of some of the most philanthropic and caring people in the home shopping industry! Many of you may not know this, but I have my own Children’s Miracle Network story to tell…and it has to do with the birth of my youngest son, Alec, and his first few months of life on this earth. Alec was born prematurely and had difficulty with his lungs and heart immediately after his first breaths. Kelli had no idea while she was recuperating that we were whisking Alec away to All Children’s Hospital, in St. Petersburg, to get immediate care. For me, as a father of two already, I was completely terrified. The doctors and nurses of All Children were some of the most amazing people that I have ever met. From Alec’s first few minutes until he was thriving and ready to leave and come home, they were hand in hand with Kelli and me the entire way. I would get off the air at 3AM and then head immediately to the hospital where the staff would be waiting for me to help feed and talk to little Alec as he fought his way to health. I will forever be grateful for their support and encouragement during those toughest of times.

The ‘Pitchmen’ Premiere party was an incredible success! It was like a ‘Who’s Who’ of Interactive Television Shopping! Kept up with a lot of great friends and pretty much behaved like a rockstar…hehe! Ok, maybe not that crazy! It was great seeing Billy and Anthony and to share in their success. They were only ‘newbies’ in this industry when they arrived on my midnight to 3AM show on HSN, but from the moment they hit the set, to the time we were on air, they were incredibly professional and an asset to this industry.

And So It Begins…

Welcome to John Cremeans.Com!

I am one of the first several on-air home shopping hosts and considered a pioneer in the home shopping industry with over 25,000 live hours, over 100,000 product presentations and over 2 Billion dollars in sales! Since 1985 to the present, My span of over 24 years as a national television host is unrivaled by only a few in electronic retailing. I consider myself extemely fortunate to do something that I absolutely love! During my tenure in this industry I have represented designer jewelry lines, cookware, the latest electronics, everything for the home…even fashion!I am currently employed at HSN, and have been with the company for close to 18 years! I’ve hosted the ‘Sunrise’ morning show for 4 years and earlier on in my tenure hosted the midnight to 3AM slot for over 14 years! I am the most recognized late night, early morning, shopping host in the industry! My broadcast career started while I was a senior in high school and worked at a local radio station – WIXK AM & FM in New Richmond, Wisconsin doing part-time night and weekend announcing. I later worked in talk radio at WRPX in Hudson, Wisconsin just outside the twin cities of Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota. I was promoted to News Director at both stations and later became the Station Manager at WRPX. My moniker “The Doctor of Shopology” was given to me by a caller during my earlier days as a host. My travels have taken me to networks that have included American’s Value Network, CVN – The Cable Value Network and currently HSN. One of my most popular shows was CVN’s ‘SoldOutrageous’ and HSN’s Sunrise Show with my cohosts Lynn Murphy and Lori Leland! They were affectionately known as my ‘Cremeans Cuties’!
