Andover News: A User’s Guide For Andover Residents

Andover News is an independent, reader-supported local news site that seeks to be nonpartisan, transparent, fair and fun. Our mission is to help Andover residents better understand and feel more connected to the place where they live with comprehensive coverage of local government, people, events and news.

Andover News was founded in the summer of 2022 by Dave Copeland. Copeland was previously the regional manager for Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island for Patch.com, where he oversaw a team of 10 journalists posting content on more than 110 local news sites.

Copeland has worked in journalism for more than 25 years. Before joining Patch in 2017, he worked for several newspapers and news organizations, including Dow Jones, the Boston Globe and the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. He also is the author of Blood & Volume: Inside New York’s Israeli Mafia (Barricade Books, 2007).

Copeland and his wife have two young daughters and have lived in Andover since June 2018. See www.davecopeland.com for more information.
