, according to reports from the Wall Street Journal and CNBC
, the Washington Business Journal reported Thursday.
The Journal, citing people familiar with the discussions, said the Post will likely roll out next year a metered paywall that would allow casual readers to see a limited number of stories for free before being charged a subscription fee. The Post will also increase its print paper's newsstand price, the Journal said.
