NEW YORK – February 5, 2020 – 710 WOR, The Voice of New York, announced today the debut of a new, local program hosted by national talk radio and TV personality Buck Sexton. Launching February 10, The Buck Sexton Show will broadcast live on weeknights from 6 - 7 p.m. ET.
As host of The Buck Sexton Show, the former CIA officer and NYPD counter-terrorism expert will share his intelligent and fresh take on the latest news stories and headlines, while welcoming a variety of guests and experts. The New York native will bring his real-life experience and expertise as he discusses everything from business and politics to entertainment and social issues.
“I’m thrilled at this opportunity to speak to my fellow New Yorkers in drive time on the airwaves of the legendary WOR,” said Sexton. “I grew up in this city and worked to defend it as part of NYPD Intelligence. I love this town, it’s my true home - and that’s the passion and experience I’ll bring on air every night to WOR.”
“As listeners drive home, we’re thrilled to have a native New Yorker and talk host with Buck’s credentials to bring them up-to-date on what they missed during the workday,” said WOR Program Director Tom Cuddy.

He also appears frequently on Fox News Channel and other outlets as a political commentator and national security analyst.
Sexton previously served as a CIA officer in the Counterterrorism Center (CTC) and the Office of Iraq Analysis. He completed tours of duty as an intelligence officer in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as other hotspots around the globe, and led intelligence briefings for senior U.S. officials, including the President.
