It was a sad day back in July when Buzz Bands columnist Kevin Bronson was let go from his near six-year LA Times post amid massive cutbacks. He wrote one of the LA Times' more notable blogs called Buzz Bands before it was folded into the paper's Soundboard blog.

Today, we stumbled upon his new venture -- a website called Buzz Bands (obviously) at It's not fully operational yet, but it does act as a little teaser for its launch later this month.

On his About page, he describes him self as "a lifelong newspaperman — well, until the Times’ massive workforce reductions. He’s the kind of guy who adores caffeine, judicious use of falsetto and the 6-4-3 double play, and abhors exclamation points, modern country music and any notion that New York City is the center of the cultural universe." Kevin. Bronson. Rocks.
