The two most important time slots for sports talk radio are in the morning and afternoon when people are driving to work. As much as podcasts, digital music, and streaming have taken ears away from radio, people still tune in when they’re in the car. That makes the morning and afternoon drive time slots key battlegrounds when Sportsnet 650 launches in September, as they aim to steer the listening audience away from TSN 1040.
With his oustanding statistics as a backup for the Sabres last season, the Canucks signing Anders Nilsson this off-season made a lot of sense. Apparently, it also made spider-sense. The Canucks new goaltender has a son, Mio, who just turned two earlier this month. Apparently Mio is a big fan of Spider-Man, which is understandable: Spider-Man is awesome. To add just the right touch to Mioâ€™s birthday, Nilsson decided that Spider-Man himself needed to show up.
Bo Horvat needs a contract. The Canucks’ leading scorer last season is a restricted free agent and is angling for a significant raise on his entry-level deal. Horvat is coming off a 52-point season and is the presumed future captain of the franchise: just how much do you pay him and for how long? It’s a difficult question to answer. As much as he has been transitioning into a role as the team’s first-line centre, that’s as much by necessity as it is merit.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
