Who is Appen Media Group?
Thirty years ago, Ray and Christina Appen bought a bi-monthly newspaper
in Alpharetta called The ReVue, left their positions at The Miami Herald and moved to run the newspaper. In the following years, they renamed the paper The Revue & News and increased the publishing frequency to weekly.
Following the success of The Revue & News, the Appens started publishing three more weekly papers, a monthy women’s magazine and a quarterly reloca- tion guide. They even expanded outside of publishing to social media manage- ment, design and graphics services, digital newsletter management and web- site services. However, the core business remains community news publishing.
July, 2014 marks a new chapter for the Appens with the introduction of the North Atlanta Business Post, covering six counties north of Atlanta.
