Radio and TV Personality Kidd Kraddick Dead at 53

iStockphoto(NEW ORLEANS) -- Nationally syndicated radio and TV personality Kidd Kraddick died suddenly Saturday while attending a charity golfing outing in New Orleans. He was 53.

Robert Wilonsky with the Dallas Morning News, said Kraddick's passing leaves a major void in the airwaves.

"What made him great was his sincerity and that -- in a medium full of people who shout at you, who bark at you, who make fun of you and who think it's nothing but a blood sport -- was so astonishingly rare," Wilonsky told ABC News radio.
