Alpha Media Executive VP of Programming, Scott Mahalick commented on the announcement, “We’re thrilled to be amping up our paranormal broadcast activity with the addition of Art Bell following Clyde Lewis’ Ground Zero. It’s a home run for Alpha Media to have the two biggest talents anchored on FM NEWS 101 KXL.”
Alpha Media Senior VP/Market Manager Milt McConnell stated, “Art is an American Original in terms of putting the paranormal on the radio landscape. We are so proud to extend his coverage to the Northwest where there is a rabid appetite for his unique brand of communication.”
“I think the next Nielsen radio ratings should hold quite a surprise and a great story,” added Art Bell.
