Of all the newspapers that have come and gone from Bernalillo since territorial days, The Sandoval Signpost is the last one standing. The Signpost began as the Sign Post (two words) as a community newsletter started by Candy Frizzell in 1988. It quickly grew into a full community newspaper and in 1993 Barb and Ty Belknap bought the Sign Post where they published it until 2022 when they began seeking a new owner.

In 2022, Belknap Publishing sold the Signpost to CTRL+P Publishing, a community newspaper group owned by Pat Davis. Today, the Signpost and Corrales Comment are part of the CTRL+P group sharing coverage of Sandoval County.
