The man behind the voice in the night of "Coast to Coast AM" has died, according to several sources. If you've ever flipped through the radio channels late at night, chances are you've heard Art Bell's voice. The show was known for taking on paranormal and supernatural topics that no other shows would touch at the time.

Bell was a lifetime smoker and had struggled with pulmonary disease. The show's new host, George Noory, said Art was recently hospitalized with breathing problems. Bell's show was found on roughly 500 North American radio stations at the peak of its syndication in the 1990's. Bell broadcast the show from his remote hometown of Pahrump, Nevada on KNYE 95.1 FM.

Bell retired from "Coast to Coast AM" several times throughout his career and left the show for the last time in 2010. Since then, George Noory and George Knapp have led the show forward. Bell briefly resurfaced on SiriusXM satellite radio as a host of a new show called "Dark Matter". Bell continued to explore his favorite topics on the new show before ending shortly after. He once set the Guinness World Record for "broadcasting solo" for 116 straight hours at a station in Okinawa, Japan.
