Run & Buzz says "goodbye" to static games with players stuck behind podiums. This family-friendly half-hour game show requires fast feet as much as a quick mind as three teams of two listen to clues and then have to rush to a buzzer on the other side of the studio to answer the question. Challenges include brainteasers, puzzles, anagrams and more, with contestants facing the dilemma of waiting for more clues to be sure their answer is right, or rushing across the studio to buzz in with a guess before the other contestants. Only one team will sprint to the final round and go for the big prize money.

In the 1981 TV movie about the 1980 U.S. hockey team called Miracle on Ice, Schneider is played by Jonathan Sagall. Buzz's son Billy portrayed him in the 2004 Disney movie Miracle. When director Gavin O'Connor was made aware of the family connection, he stated that he immediately wanted to offer Billy a role in the film. On the animated TV series American Dad, Buzz is also alluded to as Roger's persona “Chex Lemineux” in the episode “Return of the Bling”. This is unconfirmed, but he is one of the only players not referenced in the episode. Roger is also present in place of Buzz in several photos shown in the slide show at the 1980 Olympic team reunion in the episode.
