Radio host Artwork Bell, well-known for his present "Coast to Coast AM" and its "X-Information"-flavored deal with the paranormal, died Friday on the age of 72, Nevada authorities confirmed Saturday".

According to Nye County, Nevada Sheriff Sharon Wehrly, Bell was found dead Friday in his home in Pahrump, Nevada.

The present tweeted a remark from its present host, George Noory, who described Bell as "a legend - a radio icon who went in opposition to the grain and developed an incredible present referred to as 'Coast to Coast AM.' His influence on my life is past phrases".

A cause of death has yet to be determined.

Mr. Bell hosted the popular radio talk show "Coast to Coast AM" before he left the airwaves in 2002. According to his biography, he was recognized in the Guinness Book of Records for a 116 hour (and 15 minutes) solo broadcast marathon when he deejayed for an AM radio station in Okinawa, Japan. He was also the original owner of the Pahrump-based radio station KNYE 95.1 FM.

Groban recalled staying up late to listen to the host's "one of a kind" voice and how "his shows were so weird & spooky but somehow managed to hold off your skepticism".

Coast to Coast AM is aired on over 300 radio stations in the USA and Canada. More recently he was involved in the creation and production of the overnight talk show Midnight in the Desert on the Dark Matter Digital Network.

Before "coast-to-coast AM" began, Bell, who was born in 1945, was in the Air Force during the Vietnam War and then there he "cried his youth passion for tv by working on a pirate radio channel", in line to the obituary.
