Viewing Single Post From: Guy Wilson Talks The “Days” Gay Engagement

The connection I'm making is that at the same time they were removed from the NBC promo, they have gotten two recent exclusive interviews with gay press outlets. This is a first on daytime TV, yet they're giving the interviews to specialized outlets. If Days really wanted to advertise this 'first', these wouldn't be the obvious choices imo.
Question, since I know absolutely nothing about PR, which happens more, a show or an actor solicits interviews or a media outlet requests interviews? Or are they about equal?
The show almost always arranges the interviews. You'll sometimes get the 'regulars' requesting, but the only reason they can do this is that the show has used them as media outlets in the past.

For example, when you see a movie actress on shows like Regis and Kelly, Ellen, etc, that is because the movie's publicist has called those shows to request their guest be on. (The analogy here being that Days as a show is like the movie.)
