Quencie Thomas BIO:
My name is Quencie Thomas, and I am the founder and host of Studio Q, which delivers fun, authentic and unguarded conversations with celebrities. I go beyond Social Media and Tabloid headlines to really connect you with the person. My career began on the campus of Clark Atlanta University where I did my first celebrity interview with platinum-selling So So Def recording artist, DA Brat, for my friend's college TV show called Premiere TV. After that interview, I never looked back. I went on to create a 30-minute weekly TV show entitled, Studio Q, on a local access channel in my hometown. My celebrity guests at that time included: Grammy award winning Gospel artist Kirk Franklin, and Academy Award nominated actor, Danny Glover. I also wrote a column for The Atlanta Voice newspaper entitled, "Q's Corner," and was a freelance writer for The State Journal Register.
My most memorable celebrity encounter came a month before completing my Master's degree in Communications from the University of Illinois at Springfield. It was a dream come true interview with my favorite singer, Whitney Houston, on a MTV show called FANatic. It was the best graduation gift I could have ever received. According to co-creator and executive producer of FANatic, Ed Connelly Jr., the Whitney Houston interview was one of their highest rated shows ever. When asked about my interview performance, his response was: "Honestly, I think she was one of, if not the best interviewers, we've ever had."
After obtaining my master's degree, I moved to Los Angeles and utilized my education and skills I acquired on Premiere TV and Studio Q to produce for networks like NBC, CBS, FOX, MTV and BET and for TV shows like The Tyra Banks Show and Divorce Court. Now you can find me interviewing all of your favorite stars right here on Quencie.com.
