  • BREAKING: Former Coast to Coast AM Host Art Bell Dead at Age 72

Art Bell, the longtime radio personality and host of "Coast to Coast AM" has died at age 72.

Eccentric radio host Art Bell passed away at his Pahrump home Friday, according to the Nye County Sherriff's Office.

Bell hosted the popular radio talk show "Coast to Coast AM" before he left the airwaves in 2002. Coast to Coast AM then became syndicated across the USA and Canada in the 1990s, eventually through Chancellor Media in the mid-90's before becoming a part of Premiere Radio Networks and Clear Channel Communications in 2001. "My wife admits to being a little anxious when she discovered my Art Bell listening habits". He was also the original owner of the Pahrump-based radio station KNYE 95.1 FM.

The show developed a cult following after he created it in 1993 and was touted as the country's most listened to overnight radio programme.


In July 2016 Bell had a health scare, spending five days in a Las Vegas hospital, according to the show's website.

It wasn't until 2006 is when the Vietnam veteran was inducted into the Nevada Broadcasters Association Hall of Fame in 2006 and the National Radio Hall of Fame in 2008. An autopsy to determine Bell's cause of death is scheduled for later this week.

Coast to Coast AM is aired on over 300 radio stations in the US and Canada.
