Appen Media Group

Appen Media Group

Serving North Atlanta since 1983.


Delivering quality news and marketing campaigns to the communities we serve.

Part of the community for over 30 years

Over thirty years ago, Ray and Christina Appen bought a bimonthly newspaper in Alpharetta called The ReVue. They left their positions at The Miami Herald and moved to run the paper. 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 covering North Fulton and South Forsyth, a monthy women’s magazine and a quarterly relocation guide. They expanded their business to include print publishing, website services, social media management, email management, video production, podcast production, branding and media buys.

Appen Media Group has been a pillar of the community over the past three decades, and continues to grow with the area.

We have tried other publications and digital advertising, but nothing brings in the results that the Herald newspapers bring us. Appen and the Herald Newspapers is our primary advertising vehicle and last year, almost 65% of our direct residential sales came directly from the Herald Newspapers.
