NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A publicist who worked with nationally syndicated radio and TV personality David "Kidd" Kraddick says Kraddick has died at a charity golf event in greater New Orleans. He was 53.

Ladd Biro of the public relations firm Champion Management told The Associated Press that Kraddick died Saturday at a tournament organized to raise money for his Kidd's Kids charity.

"He died doing what he loved," Biro says.

No cause of death was immediately given.

Biro says the "Kidd Kraddick in the Morning" show is syndicated by YEA Networks and heard on more than 75 radio stations. The show's cast is seen weeknights on nationally syndicated TV show "Dish Nation."

YeaNetworks said in a statement that the show's crew is "heartbroken over the loss of our dear friend and leader."
