Little more than three weeks ago, the legendary producer/director team of Fred Gaudelli and Drew Esocoff had little idea of how a minor New England weather forecast might alter their high-profile world of NFL broadcasting.
Over-the-top distribution is all the rage in media circles these days, but one area where the direct-to-consumer model hasn’t completely taken off yet is with individual sports franchises. Although leagues commonly take the lead on live-streaming services to mobile devices, tablets, and connected devices for television screens, teams are sitting on a wealth of content created for websites and social-media platforms.
In response to the terrible fires raging through Northern California, Turner and the NBA have canceled its season-opening on-site studio Road Show that was originally scheduled to be held on Tuesday Oct. 17 in San Francisco. On Friday afternoon, Turner Sports issued the following statement:“Through our ongoing conversations with local officials, we reached this decision primarily to ensure all of the valuable resources and focus can be directed toward those in need.
@jeffmoore09@jasonbarfield Totally agree. Feel that way about most sports. I can see the plays develop so much more clearly from that angle. Take that and bottle it in an even more intimate angle with SkyCam and there's certainly potential here.
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".
