Who is Jill Bauer?
Born and raised in California, Jill graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. She joined WLFI-TV18 as a Weekend Anchor in 1989 to channel her capabilities and explore her abilities. While a four-year stint at the network helped Jill hone her journalistic and communicative abilities, she knew she wanted to chase something more. Finally, in 1993, she accepted a job as an on-air host at QVC. This decision ultimately took Jill to Pennsylvania, where she has been based since the last few decades.

The television personality took to her former Instagram account to explain her departure from the shopping channel.

By exiting the show, Jill decided to take a leap of faith so that she wouldn’t regret her decisions somewhere down the line.
