Bell’s paranormal-themed show Coast To Coast AM was syndicated on about 500 North American stations in the 1990s before he left the nightly show in 2002. He broadcast the show from Pahrump’s KNYE 95.1 FM, a station he founded. Bell retired several times in his career, which included a short-lived show on SiriusXM satellite radio in 2013.

    In a 2016 interview on the Hey U Guys entertainment website, Kidder said she thought the first Superman film (1978) would be a "flop." She added, "Nothing prepares anyone for that sudden thing of being world famous. It was such a shock. It wasn't something I really liked or something I was very good at. I didn't realize how good the movie was until I saw it at the premiere in Washington."

    Margot Kidder, Lois Lane in four Superman movies, dies at 69
