Industry Tribute to Kidd Kraddick
Benefiting Kidd’s Kids Foundation
The AWM luncheon on November 14th will be in celebration of the life of Kidd Kraddick and in honor of his contributions to this market that have impacted so many.
Willing to be a resource to young professionals and students, Kidd’s morning staff served as an AWM Student Media Tour host this past March 2013 providing students career information about media internships.
Please join the Kidd Kraddick in the Morning Team and your colleagues in the DFW media community as we share videos and great memories of Kidd… and know you are helping to support his legacy of Kidd’s Kids – his foundation that is dedicated to bringing joy to thousands of chronically and terminally ill children and their families by providing them with an unforgettable adventure. The Kidd’s Kids program is based on the premise of making a difference in the lives of children with special medical needs.
