Syndicated morning radio personality David "Kidd" Kraddick was beloved by his everyday listeners and famous interview subjects alike.
The popular DJ passed away at the age of 53 on Saturday, while attending a golf tournament in New Orleans. He was there raising money for his Kidd's Kids charity, and the cause of his death is still unknown.
In the wake of his passing, several stars from around the globe have voiced their sadness at losing bright presence in the industry:
Kraddick's management has said in a statement that "at the appropriate time, we will release more information about the cause of death. He died doing what he loved, and his final day was spent selflessly focused on those special children that meant the world to him."
