On July 27, radio personality Kidd Kraddick, host of the syndicated “Kidd Kraddick in the Morning” radio and Dish Nation television show passed away in Gretna, La. at his Kidd’s Kids Charity Golf Event, an event that raised money to support trips for terminally ill children to Disney World, along with their families.
As a listener of his show since Hurricane Katrina, when he constantly acknowledged the people of the Gulf South and the devastation inflicted by the natural disaster, when I first heard the news I suspected a nasty rumor or hoax. But, sadly, that was not to be the case. As of this writing there are no reports on the future of the show, charity or cast members
