Administrative history

Studio Q started as Studio Cue in 1980. It was a student produced in-studio interview show filmed and edited in Kingston’s local community access cable studio (then Cablenet 13).
In 1985, the show was incorporated under Queen’s A.M.S. In the 1989-1990 season it adopted a newscast format.The format went through several content changes over the years —shifting from news to talk show to sketch comedy. A Journal article published on Sept. 22, 1989 reports that the premiere show covered “the city’s new recycling program, improvements in Frosh Week, and the standards of education at Queen’s.” Studio Q lost its broadcast slot of 6 p.m. on Cablenet 13 in 1997.

The name of the show changed again in 2006 (or 2007) to QueensTV (QTV). In 2015 QTV amalgamated with two other student-run services, Yearbook & Design Services (YDS) and Convocation Services, to form a marketing entity named “Studio Q”.
