Dark Matter News was originally founded by Leo Ashcraft in January 2015 as part of a paranormal news broadcast for the late Art Bell on his show Midnight in the Desert. On May 21, 2021, Phantom Detectives LLC purchased the rights to the news program. DMN brings you the latest news covering the strange, weird, unexplained, conspiracy, and world events.
Our news program brings writers from around the world together with different viewpoints on the latest news from a skeptic’s perspective.
The Dark Matter News newscast debuted in 2015 and was used exclusively on Midnight in the Desert as the primary news service of that program. We use extremely high production values, excellent attention to detail, and each of our newsreaders bring a unique approach to delivering the news.
On July 20, 2021, The Dark Matter Newscast officially returned to honor the tradition started by the original creator Leo Ashcraft.
