News people can trust from an independent newspaper not owned by an outside corporation. News from every county in New Mexico.


Our Story

In 2012 a local student named Paul Telles had the original idea for a truly state-wide newspaper unlike anything available before, available in every county in New Mexico. The name New Mexico Tribune was chosen and in 2016, a few years after the original idea, Paul started the newspaper officially while he still worked full time at a local call center.
