Syndicated Rado Host Kidd Kraddick Dies at Age 53

NEW ORLEANS, La. (CNN) - David "Kidd" Kraddick, whose morning radio show aired nationally, has died. He died Saturday in New Orleans at a golf tournament to raise money for his Kidd's Kids Charity, his management company said.

His official website had the following statement titled "RIP Kidd Kraddick" on Sunday:

"All of us with YEA Networks and the Kidd Kraddick in the Morning crew are heartbroken over the loss of our dear friend and leader. Kidd devoted his life to making people smile every morning, and for 21 years his foundation has been dedicated to bringing joy to thousands of chronically and terminally ill children.

Kidd passed away today in New Orleans at a golf tournament organized to raise money for his beloved Kidd's Kids charity. He died doing what he loved, and his final day was spent selflessly focused on those special children that meant the world to him.

We ask that you respect the privacy of his family and his colleagues. At the appropriate time, we will release more information about the cause of death."

Kraddick's radio show was broadcast in more than 100 cities nationwide. In Louisiana, it aired on radio stations in Monroe, Lake Charles, Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Shreveport, Lake Charles, and the Lafayette area.
