Jana Kramer is excited to get back to Chicago. She grew up outside Detroit and, even though she didn’t come here often as a kid, she’s loved visiting as an adult. “I’ve had some of my best shows in Chicago,” she says. “The fans here just want to have a great time.”In this case, the “fans” are the expected 45,000 attendees of the fifth annual Windy City Smokeout July 14-16, a country music and barbecue fest featuring performances by Kramer, Lee Brice, Jake Owen and more than 20 others.
Sherry Lansing defies all the stereotypes of powerful Hollywood executives. In 1980, she became the first woman to head a movie studio as president of 20th Century Fox — and, later, CEO of Paramount Pictures — and yet she’s sweet, gregarious and laughs a lot. Her goodness goes beyond a charming personality: In 2008, having retired from movies, she co-founded Stand Up To Cancer, a celeb-favorite charity funding innovative research.
At a press conference on a sunny day in May, Ned curls his legs underneath him and gets comfortable on the plush ottoman, ready for another round of interviews and photographs. He seems exhausted, probably because his newfound celebrity status has come with a lot of travel: He recently relocated to LA for training, then jetted to Pittsburgh for filming. It’s a glamorous life, but a tiring one.
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".
