Former Home Shopping Club host, Larry Muzzy, remembers the man who showed him that ropes of the brand new home shopping business twenty five years ago:
I met Bill Fahey my first day as a newbee show host to the Home Shopping Club in 1985. He greeted me with a strong handshake and a warm smile. In the few weeks that followed I was taken under his wing. He was extremely professional, funny, and loved what he did. Although this industry was in its infancy, America responded to Bill with open arms and that love followed him throughout his career.Bill Fahey's obituary and guest book can be viewed at the Star Tribune here.
After he left to join upstart CVN, I knew I had big shoes to fill. Before he departed he pulled me aside to fill me with encouragement and kicked me out of the nest to fly on my own . . . which I did for nearly 20-years within this electronic retailing industry. I thank Bill Fahey for showing me the way. As we know he will be missed on Earth . . . Heaven will now be blessed with that smile that lights up a room.
