About Bob Circosta
TV host Bob Circosta has an estimated net worth of $400 million in 2012. Most of Circosta’s fortune is amassed from being the host of the first ever home shopping on television. Considered as one of the pioneering personalities in the home shopping industry, Bob Circosta’s personal product sales have already reached over a billion dollars.
In 1977, he started working as a radio talk show host in Florida, and became an advertiser of many home products including avocado-green-colored can openers. The product had minimal sales in the market but when Circosta started advertising it via airwaves and selling it for $9.95, the station owner Bud Paxson and Circosta were surprised with the turnout of sales. Within just an hour, every can opener available in the studio was sold.
This led to the founding of a local home shopping cable station by Paxson and later on, Home Shopping Network (HSN) was launched. With his familiarity with TV viewers and his impressive sales accomplishments, Circosta became one of the most sought-after lecturers in the world as well as business consultants. He has appeared on many sales conventions and corporate conferences such as Enlightened Wealth Institute, World’s Greatest Marketing Seminar and IBI Global.
