NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A few years ago, former mayor Karl Dean began the conversation about mass transit with the failed AMP rapid transit bus system. This year, Mayor Megan Barry became the architect of mass transit, unveiling a $6 billion regional plan to help solve the traffic woes Nashville commuters face every morning and afternoon. There’s too much traffic, too much congestion, and too many cars.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – More than a half century since a Tennessee man made the ultimate sacrifice for his country, his legend lives on in his hometown. Fifty-six years ago, James Thomas Davis, better known as Tom, became part of history for his valor in a faraway land. “Tom was an adventurous boy,” said Livingston Vice Mayor Bill Winningham. Winningham, who has been vice mayor for 40 years said he was a classmate and friend of Davis and he remembers him fondly.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – In 2015, Nashville saw the highest number of youth murders in a decade and 20 homicide victims were teenagers or younger. Last year, many of the youth murders were described as acts of brutal retaliation for squabbles that police say were once settled by punches instead of bullets. Nashville Mayor Megan Barry has targeted youth violence and is working tirelessly to reduce it. “What I want to see is, I want to see a reduction of kids killing kids,” she said.
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".
