From the release:
The Washington Post increased copies available today for sale at retail locations and in newsboxes by 30%, but sold out within hours. The sell-out is an indication that a newspaper is still the most tangible news source and keepsake for great moments in history. For D.C.-area residents who still want a copy of the paper, The Washington Post will produce 150,000 copies of a commemorative edition available at leading local retailers available later this afternoon.
The Washington Post is the country’s fourth largest newspaper, and third largest in Sunday circulation with over 2.2 million readers. The Post’s Web site has had record page views for the past few months leading up to the election, with nearly 335 million page views in October.
Today The Post continues to lead political coverage with the launch of “44: A Transition to Power: The Obama Presidency,” a political news blog chronicling the new presidency and the vast changes in Washington that come with a new administration. http://voices.washingtonpost.com/44/
