USA Radio Network was established in 1985 by the late Marlin Maddoux. Maddoux had hosted his own local conservative news talk program, Point of View, in Dallas, Texas since 1972.[1] In 1982, the program began broadcasting nationwide on the Satellite Radio Network. Maddoux identified the need for a national news service for radio stations not served by the major networks. The newly chartered USA Radio Network went on the air with its first newscast via satellite on September 15, 1985.[1] Maddoux died on March 4, 2004.[1]

In 2008, USA Radio Network merged its corporate structure under Larry Bates of Memphis, Tennessee with Information Radio Network, a network with a more alternative focus, with programming on the two networks remaining separate. The combined company was known as IRN/USA Radio Network; the old IRN became IRN/USA-1, and the two existing USA Radio Network channels became channels 2 and 3. IRN/USA Radio Network went into receivership in 2013 due to legal issues of its sister company First American Monetary Consultants.[2] Cross Platform Media took over day-to-day management of the network under the direction of the courts until Cross Platform purchased it from receivership in September 2014.

Cross Platform Media immediately removed the IRN moniker, shut down all of IRN's programming, and relaunched the original USA Radio Network brand as their first step in an aggressive revitalization program that included overhauling USA's mainstay program, USA Radio News and rebuilding its programming lineup. Russ Jones stepped in as Senior Vice President and News Director to oversee the 24-hour news department.[3]

On October 9, 2015, Liftable Media, a company that specializes in digital and social news websites, acquired USA Radio Networks from Cross Platform Media.[4][5] Shortly after the sale, Chief Content Officer Tim Maranville sued Cross Platform Media seeking back wages for himself and his wife, who was also employed by Cross Platform.[6] On October 15, Liftable hired former nationally-syndicated conservative talk show host Rusty Humphries as Senior Vice President of Programming.[7] The network hired Wayne Allyn Root as an on-air host in 2017.[8]

Nevada Radio, LLC based in Washoe Valley, Nevada acquired the network in 2018[9] and severed ties with Humphries.[10]

Daybreak USA is the station's long-running morning news magazine.[11] It continues under hosts Rodd Stowell and Rachel Marie weekdays 6:00 to 9:00 am EST. USA Radio brought Wyatt Cox on board in December 2015 to produce a 24-hour old-time radio Christmas special.[12] Old-time radio broadcasts have been a staple of the network for several years; since December 26, 2015, the broadcasts have aired under the umbrella title "Classic Radio Theatre."[13] Other mainstays of the network include Ron Seggi, whose entertainment and interview program airs weekends and the "Greatest Heroes" hour-long profiles of historical American figures.
