Appen Media

Appen Media Community news for North Atlanta since 1983. Podcasts for all since 2018. Thirty years ago, Ray and Christina Appen bought a bi-monthly newspaper in Alpharetta called The R***e, left their positions at The Miami Herald and moved to run the newspaper.

In the following years, they renamed the paper The R***e & News and increased the publishing frequency to weekly. Following the success of The R***e & News, the Appens started publishing three more weekly papers, a monthy women’s magazine and a quarterly relocation guide. They even expanded outside of publishing to social media management, design and graphics services, digital newsletter managemen
