My name is Quencie Thomas, and I interview the stars you love! I am the founder and host of Studio Q, which delivers fun, authentic and unguarded conversations with celebrities and people who are rock stars in their field. My career as a celebrity interviewer 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 a 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 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.
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 at Springfield. It was a dream come true interview with my favorite singer and childhood idol, 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 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. My dream is for my celebrity interview styled show, Studio Q to be nationally syndicated and successful. Until then, you can find me live streaming, covering red carpets and interviewing all of your favorite celebrities right here on Quencie.com.
