Carson Daly, American TV Host, radio personality, and TV producer, is experiencing a sad loss today as his mother suddenly died early Monday morning. 73-year-old Pattie Daly Caruso reportedly suffered a heart attack in her Palm Desert home.
The sad news was addressed early Monday morning on the TODAY show. Daly’s co-host, Savannah Guthrie, gave the opening comments.
She said, “We’re sorry to start this hour with some sad news. Our thoughts and our prayers are going out to Carson and his family over the sudden passing of his mom, Pattie.”
Daly’s mother, who was affectionately known as Kiki, was a source of inspiration for her son. He recently opened up about the influence that she has had on his life.
He said, “I think having a strong parent has just been such an inspiration because it’s a constant reminder for me to find my own pillar of strength and to be that for my own growing family.”
His mother, who was also a longtime TV personality, has shown a lot of strength throughout her life. She went through many trials, including the passing of her first husband, Jim Daly, who died from bladder cancer. Later, Pattie herself was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Carson said, “Some people will say, it’s not the cross- it’s how you bear. Her life is a constant example for me of how to bear that cross.”
The Daly family released a statement today about Pattie’s death.
"It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our mother, wife, grandmother, Pattie Daly Caruso. She passed away peacefully on Sunday, September 17th, 2017,” the statement said. “Kiki, as she was known to her grandchildren and many others, touched so many lives with her kindness, her giant spirit, and her love of life. She will be terribly missed by her family and the world, but her spark will shine for eternity.”
