From the Kingdom of Nye.. Heather Wade..?
Art Bell fans who have been following the long career he held and the shows he hosted will know that Heather Wade was handpicked by the talk show legend himself as his successor on MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT. That program aired most recently before his Friday the 13th death in April of this year..
Wade’s adventures in late night radio have not been without controversy. Shortly before Bell’s death, he was helping promote her venture into Area 51…
Multiple venues hosted her program briefly in the short aftermath of Art Bell’s passage from this planet, with no true home being found. And to make matters even more contentious, Art Bell’s long time webmaster Keith Rowland had a very public dispute about her doing programs to begin with!
He wrote multiple times that she was in violation of a non-compete clause when she left Midnight in the Desert post-Bell-mortem..
As of today, host very much loved paranormal heavyweight Dave Schrader has taken up the mantle as the chief host of MIDNIGHT..
For months, Wade vanished into the darkness of the night .. until now..
Heather Wade has made it public: She is returning to broadcasting radio from Pahrump, the same Nye County town in Nevada that Art Bell himself hosted live nightly for decades..
KCAA and KYAH will broadcast her new program, THE KINGDOM OF NYE… The program debuts on October 1 2018.
Subscribers will still be able to sign up.
The program promises to showcase the various bumper songs that Bell also used for years..
And Wade said she still plans on the Area 51 visit..
Wade’s former website that included the namesake of Bell has been taken away from her .. According to what we have learned, Airyn Bell and family has taken away Wade’s ownership of her previous domain in order to “carry on Bell’s true legacy.” … that website contains a countdown clock to whatever reveal will occur in 8 days.
Wade’s program will air at the same time it did when it was MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT.. 9pm Pacific, 12am Eastern..
It will compete against Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis, Coast to Coast Am with George Noory, and Midnight in the Desert with Dave Schrader..
There is a mixed response to Wade’s return. The kingdom of Bell fans have become divided on her hosting and her new show.. The outcome of her return will be seen within days..
