Theo No Longer with KDAY - Where is He Now? #TheoMizuhara

The most mysterious personality in radio has left the industry again. KDAY 93.5 the Beat Los Angeles night show host Theo Mizuhara is no longer with the station. Theo was program director until recently and the host of "After Hours with Theo" at KDAY.

Theo was a major personality in the 90's at KMEL in the Bay Area then at the legendary "No Colors Lines" 92.3 The Beat in LA. The station that helped launched the careers of Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and NWA. He also gained notoriety as the "The Voice of the Radio DJ" in the film Waiting to Exhale. Theo had completely dropped out of sight from about 2001 to 2006. A permanent replacement has not yet been announced for the opening in nights.

Update: October 24, 2020. 

A brief clip of Program Director Theo at KDAY in 2012.

One of the most popular and mysterious personalities in the history of radio has not been on the air for more than 10 years. The story above on Theo is one of our most popular post. We posted it in 2009. We're sure if Theo ever returned to radio, particularly in the Southern California or Bay Area markets, the buzz would be overwhelming.

We remember listening to his syndicated show 'Theo After Hours' on 106.5 The Beat in Richmond, Virginia in the 2000's.   

He's reportedly living in the San Francisco area working in the tech industry and doing some voiceover work.

Check out some recently posted drops for The Afternoon Drive with Theo created by DJ Quik via YouTube that aired on 92.3 The Beat in the 90's. Check them out here on our Hip Hop page. (Classic Hip Hop playlist).

They sound like they were made last week. Amazing quality.


  1. Must be nice to be a success and then just leave it just like that......
