July's Vanity Fair -- on sale on newsstands next week -- features the Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge, just ahead of their July trips to Canada and Hollywood. And why shouldn't Vanity Fair go in for Will and Kate? Everyone else is. According to Keith Kelly:
People, the nation's best-selling weekly, racked up its biggest newsstand sales in a year, now estimated to be nearly 2.5 million copies -- good news for Managing Editor Larry Hackett.
That's more than 1.2 million copies above its average weekly sales in the most recent six-month period ended Dec. 31, when it had seen its single-copy sales slip 5.1 percent to 1,257,536 out of its total circulation of 3.6 million, according to the Audit Bureau of Circulations.
Jann Wenner's Us Weekly sold close to 1 million copies on newsstands with its royals cover.Again, the speed of blogs, live tweets, and even weeklies beat Vanity fair to the punch. The royal wedding will probably seems years old when Vanity Fair's royal wedding issue hits newsstands on June 7th. They'll have to go in depth and offer us things we don't already know about the wedding and the couple and the honeymoon (if that is even possible).
