    NEW YORK, July 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI) announced today it will be the exclusive home to legendary radio personality Art Bell, marking the return of the trailblazing late night host to radio with a new, expanded live, nightly call-in show on which he will explore the paranormal, unexplained and more with expert guests and listeners nationwide.

    Art Bell's Dark Matter will debut in fall 2013 on Indie, SiriusXM channel 104, airing nightly from 10:00 pm — 1:00 am ET (7:00 — 10:00 pm PT). Bell will host the show from his home studio in Pahrump, Nevada—near the storied Area 51—opening the phones lines and inviting listeners and expert guests to join his uncensored, unscripted nightly conversation about a wide variety of topics including: the paranormal, near-death experiences, quantum physics, extraterrestrial life and the unusual.


    A 2008 inductee to the National Radio Hall of Fame, Bell was one of the top five most listened-to talk hosts in America when he was syndicated weeknights from 1993-2003, sharing the top rankings with Howard Stern, Dr. Laura and Rush Limbaugh, with as many as fifteen million listeners on 500 radio stations. Howard Stern and Dr. Laura are also exclusively heard on SiriusXM.


    "SiriusXM is the perfect fit for me and my new show Art Bell's Dark Matter," said Art Bell. "Though invisible, dark matter accounts for gravitational forces observed in the universe—expect these forces to be at work in the uncensored, unrestricted creative arena of satellite radio, a medium with truly extraterrestrial reach."

    "We are excited to be the exclusive home of Art Bell, who has captivated a nation of listeners throughout his career with his intelligent and inquisitive, yet entertaining, style,"said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. "Art Bell left terrestrial radio after the biggest possible successes. We are honored that Art now wants to work with SiriusXM to write his next chapter; his vision takes advantage of our best strengths and his new show will be uncensored, unrestricted, uncluttered and utterly unique. With his return to radio on SiriusXM, he will be able to reach millions of longtime listeners and new fans everywhere in the nation."


    Bell started in radio at age thirteen when he became a licensed amateur radio operator, a license and interest that he holds to this day. He hosted radio shows while serving in the Air Force in Vietnam, became an engineer when he returned to the U.S., and returned to the airwaves with a late night show on a Las Vegas radio station that ultimately became his nationally syndicated show "Coast to Coast AM."


    Art Bell's Dark Matter will be available on SiriusXM On Demand after it airs for subscribers listening via the SiriusXM Internet Radio App for smartphones and other mobile devices or online at siriusxm.com.

    I thought the guy was dead by now. He was always good for a laugh back in the day. I would laugh when callers would call-in w/ their most convoluted ghost or alien story. The caller would have a friend whose Uncle worked at Area 51 (he was obsessed w/ Area 51), and say that the Uncle snapped a bunch of pictures of strange alien aircraft and their were spacesuits that would only be alien size. Art Bell would be creaming in his pants, letting the guy ramble on for as long as he wanted.
    He would always at the end of the phone call want the information. "Pleasseee, send me your information. I need to see this!"

    I would say Sal and Richard would have a ball w/ this guy, but there are 100s of 1000s of whack-a-loons that are constantly calling...or were calling.

    First, thank you Dawg for adding this forum.

    I hope we see George Knapp come over to work with Art. George is a television reporter in Las Vegas and does a very professional radio show when he works, usually on Sunday nights several times a month on Coast to Coast. He's done some very interesting shows in the past, I find him intelligent and street smart, not at all a mush mouth like George Noory.

    A team of Art, George Knapp, and perhaps Ian Punnet once in awhile would be an awesome combination for fans of the unexplained.

    I love the time travellers from the future that call in certain shows Art has. They say it's the most highly secretive job in the future and even more secretive when they time travel back. Soooo...... it's so "secretive" but yet they are calling the Art Bell show babbling on! :backlol:

    I am looking forward to a 'Ghost to Ghost' night this year. I'm sure he can't call it that, but perhaps he can give it a new name.
