After months of pointing out Soap Opera Digest's frequent use of The Young and the Restless and Eric Braeden on its cover Roger Newcomb got some answers from Soap Opera Digest editorial director Lynn Leahey.


"There is no agreement with CBS or Eric Braeden, or any show or any actor."

"We get sales figures for each issue, and this year Eric Braeden has sold very well for us, she added. "There have been years other shows have sold well above the average, and they have appeared on more covers. The enthusiasm for shows fluctuates, as I'm sure you know."

Be sure to read the entire post for more of Leahey's responses to Roger's questions and then come back and share your take on "covergate?"
