Buck Sexton is an American spook, radio and television talk show host, and conservative political commentator.[1][2]

He was the co-host with Clay Travis of The Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show, a nationally syndicated talk radio show, and host of Hold the Line, a weeknight program on The First TV.[3]

Early life

Sexton was born in Manhattan, New York, on December 28, 1981, to Jane Buckman Hickey and Mason Speed Sexton,[4] a Wall Street financier. Buck attended Saint David's School before earning a bachelor's degree in political science from Amherst College.


Sexton is a former Central Intelligence Agency officer first joining as an analyst in 2005. His assignments included the Al Qaeda-focused Counterterrorism Center (CTC) and the Office of Iraqi Analysis.[5]

In 2011, he joined TheBlaze as a national security editor and later worked as a contributor. He eventually became a permanent anchor there.[6] Sexton has filled in for Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck.

He built his "independent journalist" credentials with the 2012 book, Occupy: American Spring - The Making of a Revolution, regarding the Occupy Wall Street movement.[7]

In 2018, The Hill announced Krystal Ball and Buck Sexton as presenters of a new slate of original programming to be produced by John Solomon. Rising launched in June 2018 as Rising with Krystal & Buck with Buck Sexton as host. Sexton departed in June 2019, with Saagar Enjeti replacing him.[8]

On June 21, 2021, Sexton began co-hosting the syndicated conservative talk radio program The Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show alongside sports journalist Clay Travis, with Sexton moving from an evening show he hosted for Premiere Networks. The program was billed as a successor to The Rush Limbaugh Show, replacing Rush Limbaugh's time slot after his death earlier in the year.[9][10][11][12]

Alan MacLeod“In addition to training spies, the SFS also produces many of the country’s top journalists, including alternative media host Saagar Enjeti. When Enjeti left his job as host of The Hill’s show, "Rising," he was replaced by another SFS graduate, Emily Miller. Interestingly, Enjeti himself was a replacement for original host Buck Sexton, a former CIA analyst.”Alan MacLeod15 March 2023
