About Us

The Buzz Magazines are community lifestyle publications in Houston’s most desirable communities – Tanglewood, River Oaks, Memorial, Bellaire and West University. According to Forbes Magazine, the Buzz communities comprise the five most expensive zip codes in the Houston area, each with a median home value of more than $1 million.

The Buzz Magazines have been connecting neighbors since 2002. Each month, we publish four magazines filled with human interest stories – all-original, first-time content – about local people and happenings. Our four print publications each has its own website with plans to launch a new digital product the first of the year. This new digital product will provide readers with yet another way to connect with each other.
