Here and Now (Here & Now) is a public radio magazine program produced by WBUR in Boston, Massachusetts, and distributed across the United States by Public Radio International. The one-hour program airs Monday to Friday at noon locally and generally at 11am, noon or 1pm on affiliate stations. The show focuses on US and international news, but also delivers arts and culture coverage, following a radio format divided into five segments: A) news flash; B) feature story; C) secondary news; D) secondary feature; and E) arts and events. While the A, B, and C segments usually involve a telephone or in-studio conversation with a reporter, author, or witness, the D and E segments often involve less conventional interviewees and, occasionally, pieces recorded in the field.

Host Robin Young joined the show not long after its inception and outlasted a series of co-hosts, including founding co-host and executive producer Bruce Gellerman. A staff of about ten full-time employees and interns helps her produce the show each day. In 2005, WBUR had announced that the show would return to its roots as a local current affairs program, but a distribution deal with PRI changed that plan.
