L.A. Style to Stop Publishing: The magazine, which confirmed that it is being bought by Los Angeles-based Buzz magazine for an undisclosed price, will cease publishing after its April issue. After that, Buzz plans to incorporate some L.A. Style editorial features and will transfer L.A. Style subscriptions to Buzz. The acquisition is expected to push Buzz's circulation above 100,000.
