With style and flair, the queens of NBCLX report on the news and current events with a unique je ne sais quoi
In their second season, the Queens of NBCLX return for more Drag News. It’s the news and current events like you never seen it before. NBCLX presents the world’s first and only weekly newscast hosted in drag. When the Queens are not in the studio, they’re out and about hitting the streets of New York City, serving up the tea in Union Square Park and getting themselves trapped in giant human inflatable hamster balls. Never boring, always provocative, join the Queens of NBCLX for Drag News.

The Queens of NBCLX read the news unprompted off a teleprompter. Join our lovely ladies every weekend; Saturdays at 10:00pm ET and Sundays at 6:30 and 11:30pm ET.

With style and flair, the Queens report on the news and current events with a unique je ne sais quoi. Drag News features must-see stories and must-see host; they’re serving up the tea in an assortment of wigs, eye shadow, and tight dresses. Learn more about the ladies in their bios below.
