My name is Quencie Thomas and I am the creator and host of Studio Q. I interview celebrities and people who are rock stars in their field. My career as a celebrity interviewer began on the campus of ClarkAtlanta University where I did my first celebrity interview with platinum-selling So So Def recording artist, DA Brat, for a college TV show called Premiere TV.
After that interview, I never looked back. I went on to create a 30-minute weekly music and entertainment TV show entitled, Studio Q on a local access channel in my hometown. My celebrity guests included Grammy winning artist Kirk Franklin, and Academy Award nominated, 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. Each job provided me so many great moments with celebrities that I penned them all in my first book, "Celebrity Encounters." My most memorable celebrity encounter came a month before completing my Master's degree in Communications, from the University of Illinois. It was a dream-come-true interview with my favorite singer and childhood idol, Whitney Houston, on an 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, if not the best interviewers, we've ever had."
In order for me to realize my dream of having a celebrity interview TV show I moved to Hollywood. I utilized skills I developed 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. Currently, you can find me blogging, podcasting, periscoping, blabbing, covering red carpets and interviewing all of your favorite celebrities right on Quencie.com.
