The late Kidd Kraddick to be inducted into National Radio Hall of Fame

The late Kidd Kraddick will be inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame during a ceremony and celebration Nov. 17 at the Museum of Broadcast Communications in Chicago, Illinois.

The announcement was made Tuesday by the National Radio Hall of Fame organization. Kraddick and three others are to be recognized for their contributions to the broadcast industry.

Kraddick was the host of a nationally-syndicated radio show before his unexpected death in 2013. During his career, he founded the Kidd’s Kids charity, which provides all expenses paid trips for children touched by tragedies or health problems.

Kraddick’s daughter, Caroline, continues to run the charity in her father’s name.
