Bell didn't make many media appearances outside of his talk show, but one Larry King on CNN appearance from 1999 has been preserved on YouTube.

Longtime southern Nevada radio host Art Bell died Friday.

He was an American Broadcaster and author and the original host of the paranormal-themed show "Coast to Coast AM", which was broadcasted on hundreds of radio station in US and Canada. The Nye County Sheriff's Office announced that an autopsy will be done later this week to determine the cause of death.

Bell permanently left the weekday edition of Coast to Coast AM in 2002 and George Noory took over the weekday hosting duties for Coast to Coast AM on January 1, 2003.

Bell first got his start in the radio business when he was 13 years old. In most recent years, classic Bell shows on the program "Somewhere in Time" have been on the air.

In 1986 KDWN in Las Vegas offered Bell a five-hour time slot in the middle of the night.
