Reality show Q&A

Last night was the finale of The Great American Baking Show on ABC, a spinoff of The Great British Bake Off. If I can get an interview with the winner confirmed tonight, what sort of time frame is there for me to get a Q&A format article ready for publishing? Are reality Q&As still acceptable? (I did a few around 2007.). -- Zanimum (talk) 22:23, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

You mean, things like this? Can remain fresh considerably longer than synthesis. We need good documentation to verify the transcript, of course. --Pi zero (talk) 22:33, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
Indeed, like that in format, except it was probably recorded a month ago (although only aired last night), and of course it's an American reality show, not an international competition dating back to 1960, earlier if you count the Stoke-Mandeville Games. All considered, still okay thematically?
For documentation, I would be publishing the email sans her email address on talk, and I could forward it to whomever. -- Zanimum (talk) 23:32, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
@Zanimum: The place to forward the emails to is "scoop at wikinewsie dot org". It sounds plausible, from what I understand of what you have in mind. --Pi zero (talk) 23:39, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
