Theodore Hooker II

FM On-Call Announcer

Theodore Hooker II hosts the Saturday morning shift during “Weekend Edition,” “A Way with Words,” “Wait Wait Don't Tell Me” and “Live Wire.” “These happen to be my favorite four shows on KUAC," he said. “I enjoy my work at KUAC because it’s a wonderful organization that has a strong drive to bring news, stories and joy to its listeners." Theodore has been on the radio for four years, starting as a night DJ on KSUA. He co-hosted “The Mint” then became the program director and created a new show, “Liner Notes.”

In the past, he was a barista at Lulu’s Bread and Bagels, a studio assistant for a sculptor (Steven Whyte in Carmel, California) and serves as a contractor for many theatre and film productions. Every summer he is an assistant coordinator for the Last Frontier Theatre Conference in Valdez. He holds a bachelor’s degree in technical design for theatre with a minor in film. Born in Monterey, California, and raised in Raleigh, North Carolina, Theodore moved to Alaska in 2010 with a desire to travel and escape the hot Southern summers. “I have come to find Alaska as my home,” he said.
