Premiere Networks has enlisted former CIA officer-turned-radio and TV personality, Buck Sexton, as the new host for the syndicated “America Now.” Sexton assumes host duties from Meghan McCain, daughter of Sen. John McCain, who has hosted the program since 2015.
“Buck Sexton with America Now” will roll out on more than 100 affiliates nationwide on Feb. 6. The show airs Mon-Fri from 6pm-9pm (ET)/3pm-6pm (PT) and can also be heard via iHeartRadio.com and its app, and AmericaNowRadio.com.
Sexton is a former political commentator for CNN, and previously served as national security editor for Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze.com and host of “The Buck Sexton Show” on TheBlazeTV and TheBlazeRadio. He has also been heard as a frequent guest on Premiere’s “The Rush Limbaugh Show,” “The Sean Hannity Show” and “The Glenn Beck Program.”
“We couldn’t be happier to welcome Buck as host of ‘America Now,’” Premiere Networks president Julie Talbott said. “He’s smart and engaging, and his previous work with the U.S. Intelligence community makes him uniquely qualified to lead conversations about the news, events and issues that affect all Americans.”
Sexton added, “The time I spend on radio is the best part of every day, and I look forward to getting to know the ‘America Now’ audience and partnering with Premiere to bring new listeners across the U.S. on to Team Buck.”
