What’s the Buzz in Burleson?

I’m Cody O’Brien, and I created The Burleson Buzz online newsletter to use my passion for writing and storytelling to serve the need for local journalism in my community of Burleson, Texas.

About the writer

Cody O’Brien, creator and writer of The Burleson Buzz

I’m Cody O’Brien, and I created The Burleson Buzz in May 2023 to use my passion and skills in writing, editing and storytelling to provide what I think is a vital service to my community.

I enjoy learning about my community through attending local government meetings, sporting events and other local events, and I’m happy to inform my community about what I learn.

I run The Burleson Buzz outside of my regular full-time job, but my goal is to work full-time for this publication by the end of 2024. Once I’m working on this full-time, I’ll be able to provide more valuable coverage of local news. I can’t get there without readers’ support, so I really appreciate everyone for subscribing to and sharing The Burleson Buzz.
