Kim K’s Wedding issue

Posted by Scott On September - 2 - 2011

This just in…thanks to my friends at Kenilworth Media.

According to Coco Perez’s website (see link above), People magazine hit it big at newsstands with the Kim K cover.

ABC stats show that People averaged 1,257,536 copies on their December 2010 statement.  If the 1,500,000 number is correct, that represents an increase of nearly 250,000 copies or a 20% improvement.  Plus, they raised the cover price by 25% as well.  Good news indeed.
