ROYAL GAIN: Speaking of bin Laden, much of the American media has moved on from the British royal wedding, but not People magazine. The weekly released a special issue on Monday (four days ahead of schedule) that has 102 ad pages, which is the most advertising to run in the magazine since 2007. Newsstands also are expecting heavy demand for the issue, as the title’s retail and wholesale partners have requested more than 15,000 custom royal wedding display bins nationwide. Meanwhile, Time moved up its publication schedule this week to release a special royal wedding edition on Monday (instead of the usual sale date of Friday). The special issue costs $5.99, an increase of $1 over the usual newsstand price.
