About Us

RI Monthly’s “Best of Rhode Island” Winner
“Best Local Blog” Statewide!!!


Newport, RI’s favorite online publication.

We try to entertain you with cool Newport stuff, pop culture references, posts about Tom Brady being the greatest man in the world, great white sharks and whatever else Christian finds interesting. Sometimes it works. Sometimes…not so much! 🙂

We have more than 78,000 Facebook fans, 19,000 Instagram followers, 8,000 Twitter followers, and a website whose monthly traffic is well into 6-figures. Edgy and irreverent, we aren’t your daily newspaper, but why on earth would you want another one of those?


PS – If we ever do anything that resembles “real” journalism, it was purely by mistake.

The Newport Buzz:

  • #1 ranked online publication in Newport & in the State of Rhode Island as per the readers of Rhode Island Monthly Magazine.
  • Offers advertisers an opportunity to reach an average of 50,000 readers each and every day.
  • Our audience is 55% women, 45% men. (source: Google Analytics)
