David "Kidd" Kraddick, a Dallas-based radio host, died Sunday in New Orleans at a golf tournament organized to raise money for children, according a post on his Facebook page. He was 53.

"He died doing what he loved, and his final day was spent selflessly focused on those special children that meant the world to him," the statement reads.

Kraddick's radio show "Kidd Kraddick in the Morning" reportedly aired in over 75 stations nationally including Dallas' "Kiss FM" KHKS-FM, and is broadcast on TV's Dish Nation.

He began his morning show in 1992 and famously closed every broadcast by saying, "Keep looking up, 'cause that's where it all is."

After more than 20 years in the business, Kraddick became close to many celebrities, several of whom have shared their condolences via Twitter.

The radio host's cause of death has not yet been released.
