LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — Radio host Arthur William Bell passed away Friday, April 13.
Arthur Bell, also known as Art Bell was the original owner of Pahrump based radio station KNYE 95.1 FM. And perhaps best known for his conspiracy theory in the paranormal, with his radio show "Coast to Coast" - which was syndicated across the nation.
The Nye County Sheriff's Office says Bell died at his home in Pahrump, Nevada.
Bell is scheduled for an autopsy later this week to determine the cause of death.
Art Bell tapped perfectly into the ancient human need to sit around the fire in the middle of the night telling crazy, scary stories. Only he got the whole nation/world together over the airwaves with him every night to do it.
Originally posted by JimmyB.: It’s not nearly the same since Art left the show.
Which is why he left. They were bought out. He refused to be their minion. He refused to change the show as directed. They had to pay him to go away, along with signing a limited term of years of no broadcasting.
When he returned from the Philippines with his lovely new wife, he and his new family were physically threatened. They endured awful, scary, violent things because he attempted to go back on air. That's why he turned the show over to Heather Wade, as host.
