The Morning Beat w/ Jai & Mikalah

Mon-Fri: 6AM-10AM PT / 9AM-1PM ET


TMB is the pulse every morning for the LGBTQ+ community where news, pop culture and entertainment combine into one large party with a purpose through the lens of the LGBTQ+ community.  Our hosts, Jai Rodriguez (Queer Eye for the Straight Guy) and Mikalah Gordon (American Idol), The format of the program is entertainment talk blended with celebrity interviews and discussion of the day’s hot topics in news and pop culture.  

Jai Rodriguez is best known as the "Culture Guy" on the groundbreaking series Queer Eye...for which he won his first EMMY award. A New Yorker at heart, Jai now lives in LA with his dog, cat, and two ornate aquariums that he's obsessed with.  When he's not on air, or acting on camera, you can find him posting thotty pics on his Instagram.

Mikalah Gordon debuted as the youngest top 12 contestant on season 4 of American Idol, where audiences fell in love with her powerful voice and unique stage presence. She may have lost to Carrie Underwood, but her run on Idol did open a lot of doors, including TV roles and a recording deal with Interscope Records. Mikalah claims her real talent now is managing to wake up for work at the same time she used to go to bed! When she isn’t in the recording studio, auditioning for TV roles, or co-hosting The Morning Beat on CHANNEL Q, you can catch her performing every weekend at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas.
