This past month we’ve been talking about Knock Knock, It’s A K-EARTH Christmas where our listeners could nominate a deserving family in need of help this holiday season. After reading through all the touching submissions, we’ve zeroed in on one family that has been directly affected by the wildfires that have been burning all over Southern California. Below is the submission we chose: (Names have been edited out for privacy):“I am nominating, not just a family, but a small Ranch Community.
Prayers go out to all those affected by the tragedy that happened late Sunday night at the Route 91 Harvest Festival. We reached out to our sister station, K-FROG in Riverside, who was there covering the show, and spoke with morning show co-host Kelli Green about what she witnessed:We also spoke with Riverside resident Blake Staats, who had won tickets to the festival from K-FROG, and was at the venue when the shots rung out:
We’ve all seen that Sports Illustrated cover of Dodgers 3rd baseman Justin Turner being doused with Gatorade by Yasiel Puig. Ever since that cover hit the newsstand in late August, the Dodgers have suffered their worst losing streak in recent years! So we tracked down the person that wrote the article, Sports Illustrated writer Stephanie Apstein. We were able to interrupt her vacation in France and get her on the phone to make her apologize for cursing the Dodgers! Take a listen! Take Our Poll
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".
