Volume I Issue 1 of The Corrales Comment arrived in newspaper boxes in Corrales on February 26, 1982. For 40 years thereafter, founder Jeff Radford ensured that The Comment kept Coraleños abreast of the latest happenings in Village Hall, new business openings, and make a public record of special events up and down Corrales Road.
On his 80th birthday, in the summer of 2022, Radford announced that he would retire and sell the Comment to Pat Davis, who had led efforts to launch The Paper after the Weekly Alibi ceased publishing in 2021.
Today, The Corrales Comment is delivered by subscription to more than 1,000 homes in Corrales and surrounding communities – that’s almost 1-in-3 households who receive their local newspaper every other week.
Pat Davis is on a mission to save local, independent journalism across New Mexico. Following the loss of the Weekly Alibi in Albuquerque in 2022, Davis led the effort with former Alibi staff and co-founder Abby Lewis to launch a new publication, The Paper. In 2022, Davis bought The Corrales Comment from retiring founder and publisher emeritus Jeff Radford. Davis’ Ctrl+P publishing manages both publications which are written by local journalists and contributors. Davis is also an elected city councilor in Albuquerque where he lives with his longtime partner, Christopher, two dogs and one old cat.
