Front page of the El Paso Herald. April, 30, 1910.

The El Paso Herald-Post was an afternoon daily newspaper in El Paso, Texas, USA. It was the successor to the El Paso Herald, first published in 1881, and the El Paso Post, founded by the E. W. Scripps Company in 1922. The papers merged in 1931 under Scripps ownership.

The Herald-Post was nominated for two Pulitzer Prizes in 1987 for a story about a Mexican drug lord and for its literacy campaign. When the Scripps-Howard newspaper chain shut the paper down in 1997, it cited its substantial decline in circulation.
