Alpharetta-Roswell Herald

Alpharetta-Roswell Herald The Alpharetta-Roswell Herald covers news most important to the residents of Alpharetta and Roswell including school, high school sports, city council, business and more.

The Alpharetta-Roswell Herald is one of the weekly newspapers in the Herald family of publications. 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 relocation guide. They even expanded outside of publishing to social media management, design and graphics services, digital newsletter management and web- site services. However, the core business remains community news publishing.
