The Herald-Post was nominated for two Pulitzer Prizes in 1987 for a story about a Mexican drug lord and for its literacy campaign. It later launched the El Paso area's first online news site in 1996. When the Scripps-Howard newspaper chain shut the paper down in 1997, it cited a substantial decline in circulation, similar to that experienced by other afternoon newspapers in the U.S. at the time.

On August 24, 2015, a former local news employee revived the El Paso Herald-Post brand by launching a website with the same name. However, the online-only publication has no affiliation with the former newspaper.
