KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Comedian Trae Crowder is a born and bred Tennessean who loves nothing better than to get a laugh by poking fun at himself and his rural upbringing. Comedy has always been a part of Crowder’s life. He’ll tell you his big break can actually be tracked back to one evening in West Knoxville. “Last fall when Tennessee lost to Florida for the 11th straight time I got hammered drunk, went in the backyard and tore the tree house down,” joked Crowder.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – Neyland Stadium and Grant Watkins Field are the grand stage for the Big Orange, but the experience stretches beyond those walls. The Cumberland Avenue Strip, for example, is the gateway to gameday. It’s a place to meet up with friends, do some tailgating and some celebrating. This year brings a conclusion to an overhaul project more than two years in the works for Cumberland Avenue that may mean some changes for fans as they roll in on Saturdays.
ALCOA, Tenn. (WATE) – A repaving project set for this weekend will cause some big headaches, especially if you use Alcoa Highway. Southbound Alcoa Highway from Hall Road to Louisville Road, south of the airport, will be closed for a repair and repaving project that centers around a railroad crossing in the area. Crews will have just under 24 hours to complete the project, so hopefully there will be no problems for the Monday morning commute. The closure runs from 8 a.m. Sunday to 6 a.m. Monday.
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".
