The radio industry has lost another superstar.

Radio host David “Kidd” Kraddick, a popular personality from Dallas, passed away this weekend while hosting a golf tournament near New Orleans.

According to Yahoo! News, Kraddick died after being taken to the hospital around 1 PM, although no cause of death has been revealed.

Clear Channel Radio wrote in a statement:

“He died doing what he loved, and his final day was spent selflessly focused on those special children that meant the world to him.”

“All of us at KISS-FM, Clear Channel Dallas, 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.”

The Facebook page for his show “Kidd Kradick In The Morning” revealed that his show was the most listened-to contemporary morning show in the U.S.

We pray for the family of David Kraddick and may he rest in peace.
