Queen’s TV has existed in some form since 1980; making it one of the oldest student television services in Canada. Originally known as Studio Cue the show has undergone several transformations in format and organization. The show changed its name to Studio Q when it joined the AMS in 1985. In 1989 the show underwent a major revamp which oriented the show towards news and away from the previous sketch comedy and variety format. The show maintained this format through to the present. Since the mid 2000s the service has slowly been moving towards a much more formal management structure. In 2007 the show and service changed its name to Queen’s TV. Going forward, the service aims to take advantage of online distribution and shift from being a community cable show to an online tv network for the Queen’s community.
Over the past 30 years, Queen’s TV has provided hundreds of students with training and experience in television production and journalism. Beyond the amazing experience that we offer to our volunteers, the service has been a valuable resource to the Queen’s community by providing news and entertainment specifically targeted for the student audience.
