Cremeans was one of the founders of the Military Shopping Channel and is now co-host of the nationally syndicated radio and television show, My Cool Inventions. He returned to HSN as a guest in 2012 and is a featured guest on shopping channels all over the world.


His moniker The Doctor of Shopology was given to him by a caller during his early days as a host. His travels have taken him to networks that have included America's Value Network, CVN - The Cable Value Network and HSN. His most popular shows were CVN's 'SoldOutrageous' where Cremeans and his late night band of characters took to the airwaves to sell anything from gold to electronics and HSN's Sunrise Morning Show where he cohosted with Lynn Murphy and Lori Leland.

Cremeans's broadcast career started while he was a senior in high school when he worked at a local radio station - WIXK & WIXK-FM in New Richmond, Wisconsin doing part-time night and weekend announcing. He later worked in talk radio at WRPX in Hudson, Wisconsin just outside the twin cities of Minneapolis–Saint Paul.
