Mark Bozek, HSN Inc.'s president and CEO since 1999, is stepping away from
the glitter of cubic zirconium and into the glamour of TV and film
production.

Bozek, relinquishing his posts, will move from HSN's Florida headquarters to
New York and set up Halo Entertainment, a production entity with projects yet to
be determined.

He joined HSN five years ago as executive vice president of broadcasting and
became the channel's president in 1998. Under his watch, HSN generated around
$1.9 billion in annual sales last year, and it is anticipated to rack up $2
billion this year.

A longtime protege of Barry Diller, chairman and CEO of HSN parent USA
Interactive Inc., Bozek worked for QVC and 20th Century Fox prior to his HSN
roles.

"I am grateful to Barry for the wild adventures and opportunities that we
have shared in these past 14 years," Bozek said in a press release Thursday. "I
have no doubt our paths will cross again."

"While I, along with his many colleagues, will miss him," Diller said in a
prepared statement, "I also know we all truly wish him the greatest
success."
