NEW ORLEANS - Nationally syndicated radio host David "Kidd" Kraddick died unexpectedly Saturday at age 53.

Kraddick hosted the the B97 FM radio station program "Kidd Kraddick in the Morning" in New Orleans. He also had a foundation, "Kidd's Kids," which rewards ill children with a dream vacation.

Kraddick was in New Orleans for a golf tournament related to his charity when he began to feel ill. He was brought to a local hospital where he passed away.

"He died doing what he loved, and his final day was spent selflessly focused on those special children that meant the world to him," said the official statement from the staff of "Kidd Kraddick in the Morning."
