Would the broadcast networks give Pelosi Impeachment time?

If things progress to the point that the Speaker decides that Impeachment is her only option, I think she should ask the broadcast networks for free live prime time to explain why that she and the House Democrats are taking this step.
She could do it in as little as 5-15 minutes of air time.
I know this would be very unusual to give free broadcast air time to a political leader other than a President.
However, I think she could convince the broadcast networks that it is the publicís interest to do so.

8. Gotcha.

If it only takes 15 minutes, hopefully that will be part of the announcement.

7. Dems could certainly buy TV time

I think a better plan might be to get on 60 Minutes for an entire hour interview.
