A huge percentage of horror fans enjoy a good conspiracy theory, and no one brought more credibility and credence to some of the world’s most far-out postulations than radio host Art Bell. His show, Coast to Coast, was listened to by an audience of millions nationwide. We’re getting news tonight that Bell has passed away at his home in Pahrump, NV.

Fittingly, Bell’s passing is already becoming a conspiracy itself with counter-cultural websites making wild accusations, as the official cause of death has yet to be revealed. As a fan of his work, I suspect he’d find some pleasure in the fact that he has become one of the urban legends he explored.
Check out some classic Bell footage in the video below which features him talking with former CNN host Larry King.
All of us here at Horror Freak News send our sincerest condolences to Bell’s fans, friends, and family. He’s one in a million and he’ll be truly missed.
