Name: Arthur W. Bell, III                                                             
Born: 17 June 1945 (age 62)                                                           
Arthur W. "Art" Bell, III (born June 17, 1945) is an American broadcaster and         
author, known primarily as the founder and longtime host of the paranormal-themed     
radio program Coast to Coast AM. He also created and formerly hosted its             
companion show, Dreamland. Semi-retired from Coast to Coast AM since 2003, he         
hosted the show on many weekends for the next four years. He announced his           
retirement from weekend hosting on July 1, 2007, effective immediately, but now       
'guest hosts' occasionally. He attributed the reason for this latest retirement       
to a desire to spend time with his wife and new daughter, born May 30, 2007. He       
added that unlike his previous "retirements," this one will stand, while leaving     
open the option to return.                                                           
Bell also owns a Pahrump, Nevada-based radio station, KNYE 95.1 FM ("The Kingdom     
of Nye ... Things That Go Pahrump In The Night"). He broadcasted from his home       
in Pahrump for his entire time as host of Coast to Coast AM except from June         
2006 to December 2006, when he lived in the Philippines.
