ABOUT THE HOST
BACK TO SHOW BIO
Kidd Kraddick is the driving force behind one of the most listened to morning shows in America, Kidd Kraddick In The Morning.
Kidd's career had a humble beginning in the 10th grade. "We sponsored a big dance for the seniors but didn't have enough money to hire a DJ. So I snuck out my dad's stereo and did it myself.
His future was set. After stints in Miami, Salt Lake City, Los Angeles and Tampa, Kidd took his show to KHKS in Dallas, where he quickly became a morning show host. In 2001, Kraddick's ratings put his morning show on top of every possible demographic in Dallas radio. Kidd Kraddick In The Morning was syndicated and is now heard in nearly 100 cities across the country and worldwide on American Forces Radio.
Kraddick's numerous accolades include America's Best Radio Personality, Radio and Records Major Market Personality Of The Year and the distinguished Marconi Award for Radio Personality of the Year.
Each year, through fundraisers and special events, his non-profit foundation raises more than an $800K to provide life changing events and activities for children with special medical needs. For over 20 years, Kidd's Kids has provided all-expense-paid trips to destinations like Disney World for the families of hundreds of children with chronic and terminal illnesses.
Kraddick has one daughter, Caroline a student at Oklahoma City University.
