It is being reported that Kid Kraddick, the nationally syndicated morning radio host, has died at a golf tournament to raise money for his charity, "Kidd's Kids", in New Orleans. He was 53-years-old.

It was rumored that Kraddick died from a brain aneurysm, but the Jefferson Parish Coroner's report indicates the cause of death as heart disease. The report is preliminary due to pending toxicology results.

This is from a release by his company "Yea Networks"...

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.
