The Buck Sexton Show (formerly known as America Now) is a three-hour early evening syndicated conservative talk radio show hosted by Buck Sexton, and carried by Premiere Networks, a subsidiary of iHeartMedia, Inc. It is broadcast live 6 to 9p.m. Eastern Time on weekdays. The show mainly covers politics, and under former hosts, was intended as a broad-audience rundown of the day's news events, including those in entertainment, which was rare for a show on American talk radio in the 2010s. It airs across 100 affiliates live or on tape delay, along with an iHeartRadio app channel.

Originally hosted by Andy Dean, America Now debuted on August 8, 2011.[1]Joe Pagliarulo (known as "Joe Pags" and based at WOAI in San Antonio) replaced Dean as interim host beginning August 11, 2014.[2] Pagliarulo ceded hosting duties to Meghan McCain (daughter of Senator John McCain) on July 15, 2015. McCain left the program on January 31st, 2017, deciding to focus on television work instead.

Buck Sexton was announced as the new host on February 1st, 2017, and began hosting the show on February 6th, 2017.[3] The show has since become a more traditional conservative talk show under his run. In early 2018, the America Now title was removed, and the program was rebranded as The Buck Sexton Show, a title previously used on his radio program with a video simulcast for TheBlaze from 2014 until 2017. Sexton's video simulcast moved to Pluto TV's "The F1rst" channel in October 2019.
