The outpouring of love from both in and outside of the radio community for Kidd Kraddick shows no sign of stopping. The man inspired the lives of many through his on-air but especially through his charitable works.
If we in the radio community want to pay Kraddick back for how he’s influenced us, let’s setup a radiothon to ensure the long-term survival of his Kidd’s Kidst charity. Even if only Kraddick’s affiliates and some other Dallas stations participated there’s hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars able to be raised. With the close connections Kraddick’s program had with Clear Channel, Cumulus, and Entercom there are hundreds of possible stations with the infrastructure in place to make this a success.
What better way to pay tribute to the man who dedicated so much of his life to helping others better themselves?
