Lee Speigel

Lee Speigel bioWriter, reporter, and paranormal expert Lee Speigel is the former host of NBC Radio’s “The Edge of Reality.” He produced and hosted nearly 1,500 programs on unexplained phenomena over an eight-year period at NBC Radio, and previously worked at Westwood One Radio and ABCNews.com.

He is the only person in history to produce, in 1978, a major presentation at the United Nations on the subject of UFOs. 1978 was also important as Speigel became one of the first media personalities —through his NBC Radio features—to bring public awareness of the now-legendary 1947 Roswell UFO crash; through the efforts of nuclear physicist Stanton Friedman, Speigel produced a weeklong series of radio reports that featured exclusive interviews with military personnel who were directly involved with the initial Roswell cover-up.

Within the same time period as his NBC experience, Speigel was also a feature writer for OMNI magazine, including several cover stories about UFOs and cryptozoology. In 1993, he produced and wrote “Lincoln’s Music In America: The Classics In Space,” a national award-winning classical music special focusing on the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. Broadcast over the Concert Music Network, the show was co-hosted by Dr Frank Drake, founder of the SETI Institute, and is in the permanent collection of the Paley Center for Media in New York City.

Since 2010, Speigel has written hundreds of stories covering unexplained phenomena and UFOs for the AOL-Huffington Post Media Group in New York.
