Premiere Radio grabs its proper cup of tea and ends relationship with John B. Wells

For years, some have heralded John B. Wells' hosting style on Coast to Coast Am as the best since Art Bell. Others, however, have often decried his divisive topics and politically charged Saturday night banter.

But now it's all over.

John B. Wells has hosted the Saturday Coast to Coast AM since Ian Punnett retired due to tinnitus. Over recent months, Wells has even filled in for main host George Noory on Friday nights, and recently even picked up some Sundays in place of George Knapp as he was recovering from a near deadly bout with sepsis.

But now, according to Wells himself on his Caravan to Midnight webpage, Premiere radio has decided to end its reportedly rocky relationship with Wells.

The post said,
Coast to Coast AM has decided to go a “different direction” on Saturday night. I am very happy and honored to have been a member of the C2C family as a regular host since January 7, 2012.
Wells continued to thank listeners for support,
I want to thank the listeners for their support and encouragement over these last two years of regular Saturday night broadcasts. The change that began in 2012 continues, is ever accelerating, and has necessitated this change as well.
Perhaps hinting at some of the back room reasons that he was taken from his bridge of the mothership:
I invite those who enjoyed or otherwise found value in the programs I hosted and the topics we discussed to join me for more on my new endeavor, Caravan To Midnight. Again, thank you all so very much. May you be blessed and remember to Make Ready for What’s to Come!!!! 
Wells went on to describe ways that people can still hear him: Paying a yearly subscription fee to hear his Caravan to Midnight online program, something he began doing while he was still hosting Coast to Coast AM.

 Already, John B. Wells has been removed from the official hosts section on Coast to Coast AM, now only featuring George Noory and George Knapp. At this moment, there is no official word as to who will replace Wells on Saturday nights. Initial rumors indicated that Darkness Radio host Dave Schrader may be the replacement, but according to a post on Bellgab, he emailed the user a denial that he will be.. Other speculation has been rampant on Bellgab regarding Wells, as it is with other hosts and topics relative to Art Bell and Coast to Coast AM. Specifically on Wells', users seemed to concur that Wells was toxic often in nature, even promoting a conspiracy theory of gun grabs after the Sandy Hook massacre.

The comments section on the Caravan to Midnight Facebook page is rocking with comments. One woman named 'Kelly' said she emailed Noory asking why Wells left. She wrote this was her response: "I just got an email from Noory's e-mail address stating Wells "left to pursue his own show." Did you quit or were you fired, or was it a mutual parting where they weren't willing to let you have CTM and host C2C?"
Wells responded in a further comment: "I did not quit FYI." Then directing his comment directly to 'Kelly,' he said, "Do not believe what you were told."

With Wells' departure, it has created a mystery: Who will replace him and what 'other direction' is Premiere Radio attempting to take?
Good luck John.
May your Caravan to Midnight be everything you wanted it to be.


  1. Many of us are fed up with George Noory, his constant egotistical politically correct posturing and apparent IQ of a carrot. Let's hope John B Wells is on every night because he will take a good market share from informed C2C listeners tired of a host who never pays attention to his guests and is dumb as a post.

    1. Loved John B. Wells show, and he was right in his comments and opinions. He is intelligent and well informed and will be missed! I may just give up Coast to Coast entirely now. This is so unfair!

  2. Good Luck to you John devastated!!

  3. George Noory is terrible. You cannot hear what he says at the end of his sentences as he tails off. Now that Wells is gone, there is only Knapp as a crumb of comfort. Good luck John B and shame on Premiere and Snoory

  4. Did you see this about John B Wells:

Mystery continues on why the Sunspot solar observatory was shut down

Sunspot apologizes for the continued closure of the facilities,” a statement on the observatory’s Facebook page said on Sunday. “The Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA) is addressing a security issue at the National Solar Observatory facility at Sacramento Peak, New Mexico and has decided to temporarily vacate the facility as a precautionary measure..

And that is just about all the public knows about why the FBI shut down the observatory within notice warning or after-event statements..
But online, theories rage into the night as to what caused the FBI to sweep into the town, close down the space observatory along with the town post office, and ever let anyone back in.. The entire observatory is reportedly empty at this time—employees obviously gone but some Twitter reports state that the actual equipment and other items have been taken away as well.

Intrigue in China: Where is Fan Bingbing

From CNN:

Fan Bingbing, one of China's highest-paid and most bankable stars, has appeared in both Chinese and Western films, including the multimillion-dollar X-Men franchise. Across the country, her face once adorned thousands of advertisements, her star power used to sell a galaxy of luxury brands, from Cartier to Louis Vuitton. She was a regular sight at major award shows and fashion ceremonies. In 2015, Time Magazine named her China's "most famous actress."  But the film star hasn't been seen in public since early June, when, according to a post on her verified social-media account, she went to visit a children's hospital in Tibet. In an article by state media Securities Daily on September 6, which was later deleted, the publication said Fan had been brought "under control and about to receive legal judgment." No official statement has been made as to Fan's whereabouts, or any potential criminal charges against the actress.  However, in a country …
