Hate them or REALLY hate them, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Jacksonville Coach Doug Marrone are big TV draws in Western New York. The Patriots' 24-20 victory over the Jaguars Sunday afternoon in the AFC title game had a 36.4 rating on WIVB-TV (Channel 4). That is only slightly lower than the 38.1 average for Buffalo Bills regular season games here.
BURBANK, Calif. — After writing a column about "This Is Us" Monday, I headed to the Burbank airport to catch a flight to Las Vegas, the first leg on my trip home. What were the odds that I would run into a star of the NBC series on my flight? And were the odds greater that we would have aisles seats across from each other? But there I was Monday afternoon sitting across from Justin Hartley, who plays Kevin. He was headed to Vegas to film an episode.
If anyone exemplifies the expression "time flies when you are having fun," it is former WGRZ-TV co-anchor John Beard. By "former," I mean Beard really, really has ended his run as the co-anchor of the No. 1 morning program "Daybreak" on Thursday morning. It was an eight-year run, though Beard continues to say it was seven years. Presumably he missed a year because he was having so much fun.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
