Staff Writer

Legendary US radio breakfast host David 'Kidd' Kraddick has died suddenly while at a golf tournament to raise money for his kid's charity. He was 53.

Kraddick's radio show was heard in nearly 100 cities.

It is unclear what caused his death but his management say, "At the appropriate time, we will release more information about the cause of death."

CNN report that last week, Kraddick did a segment on what he'd say to his co-hosts in his 'final moments on Earth.'

"When I die, you have permission to take a bunch of creepy pictures of my body. I want to thank all of you guys for being at my deathbed today. I'm going to miss you so much."

During his radio career he was named America's Best Radio Personality, R&R's Major Market Personality of the Year, and he won the Marconi Award for Radio Personality of the Year.
