US radio host Art Bell, known for his discussions of conspiracy theories and paranormal phenomena during his popular syndicated show "Coast to Coast AM", has died at his home in Nevada aged 72, the local sheriff's office said.

The last time Bell hosted an edition of "Coast to Coast AM" was in the year 2010. Most recently Premiere was syndicating Bell's show Somewhere In Time which was the best in classic Art Bell shows from 6pm - 10pm on Saturdays. No cause of death has been announced pending an autopsy later this week.

The current host of the show, George Noory, said in a statement: "Art was a legend - a radio icon who went against the grain and developed an incredible show".

George Noory, the current host of Coast to Coast AM, made an announcement concerning Bell's death during his show at about 1:20am Central Time on Saturday, April 14, 2018. He also had a show on SiriusXM in 2013. He left the show in 2002.

On April 7, NGOs, including the White Helmets , said that chemical weapons were used in Douma, Eastern Ghouta. Trump warned on Wednesday that missiles "will be coming" in response to the Douma incident.

At one time Bell had close to 10 million listeners before his sudden retirement.

But even after announcing his retirement, Bell returned to radio July 20, 2015, with a new show called "Midnight in the Desert", which is available online on TuneIn and on some terrestrial radio stations.

Bell retired in 2015 citing safety concerns for his family. He is survived by his wife Airyn and their daughter.
