Radio personality Kidd Kraddick touched the lives of millions with his inspirational passion for all things radio, charity and those close to his heart, including Kidds Kids. The untimely passing of Kidd shocked us all, and hearts were broken worldwide at the loss of an absolute legend.
Radio personalities around the country came together in one video to celebrate the life and career of a man we all found deep inspiration from and to honor his legacy as we vow to ensure it continues on.
Kidd Kraddick spent his last day at a charity golf tournament to raise money for his beloved Kidds Kids. His last day was spent making a difference, making an impact on others lives, and doing exactly what he was so passionate about. The inspiration we can find in such a sad event is that we must stop and ask ourselves: what is my legacy? What do I do with the power I may have, whether it be on the mic as an air talent or as a person with a dream to chase for a better tomorrow? Follow Kidd Kraddick's example and do something worthwhile. Something motivating. Make an IMPACT. Make a positive change in this world, one passionate step at a time. In turn, the legacy Kidd created WILL live on.
I teamed up with Jay Sparxx, night personality 95.1 Charlotte, NC, to combine the condolences and voices of those whose lives he touched in a video. Made up of mostly radio personalities, we felt a true family connection to the loss of one of our own. You will be truly missed, Kidd. Now it's our turn to make sure lives are impacted and touched every single time we crack the mic or put our listeners first. Because that's what it's all about. Changing this world for the better, together, every single day.
"Keep lookin' up, cuz that's where it all is." RIP, Kidd.
