I first met Peyton Manning during one of his pre-draft workouts in 1997. He was a very well-spoken college kid who was fighting acne like the rest of us! Peyton already knew how to deal with the media and all of our questions. Manning had a serious southern accent and we laughed at his vocabulary! I did a weekly segment on channel 13 with Peyton his first 3 seasons. It was fun to get to know this ‘new player’ before he became a star. During his 14 years with the Colts, he always treated me fairly.
In 30 years of being a sports reporter, I've met my share of self-centered athletes. They are the ones that just want a relationship to help build their public image. They are consumed with their life and what's only important to them. And then there are athletes like John Andretti. Think about the pressure of having that name! John has used his platform over the past 21 years to give back. He raised millions of dollars for Riley Hospital for Children and St Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
We're just 50 days away from the Summer Olympics in Rio, and you can only watch it on Channel 13! This weekend, you can get a taste for the Olympics right here in Indianapolis. Over 100 divers will try to make the Olympic Team at the IUPUI Natatorium.
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".
