HOUSTON - KHOU 11 is partnering with the “CBS Buzz Tour” in Houston on Tuesday, August 7 before the Astros game at Minute Maid Park. 

KHOU 11 News anchors Lily Jang and Katherine Whaley -- along with CBS reality stars Burton Roberts (Survivor: Pearl Islands) and Alex Boylan (The Amazing Race) -- are on hand for the meet-and-greet and giveaways from 4:00-7:00 p.m. 

"It's our way of thanking fans for making CBS the no. 1 network in America," said Roberts.

The CBS Buzz bus will drop by our studios on Wednesday morning for appearances on KHOU 11 News This Morning and Great Day Houston.

Throughout the summer, the CBS star-branded and mobile studio-equipped “CBS Buzz Tour” (#cbsbuzz) bus is criss-crossing the country, bringing network ambassadors, activities and giveaways to 60 markets in 60 days as a thank you to the millions of loyal fans who continue to make CBS America’s most watched network.

Roberts and Boylan are spearheading the on-the-road fan activities in Houston and will also engage viewers from anywhere in the U.S. throughout the tour with “Inside Buzz” CBS.com webisodes, blogs and social media contests and posts via www.cbs.com/buzz

In 2002, Boylan was on the winning team on CBS’s hit reality television series, “The Amazing Race 2.”  Since then, Boylan has hosted numerous television shows, including the popular PBS series “At the Chef’s Table,” the Health Corner DVD series “What’s Cooking with Alex” and the informative pet series “Animal Attractions.”

In 2003, Roberts was a contestant on CBS’s popular reality television series “Survivor: Pearl Islands,” the series’ seventh season, after which he created the cable series “Camp Reality.”  Roberts also raced in “Eco-Challenge: Fiji,” and competed on the cable show “Battle of the Network Reality Stars."
