(WTNH)–Big crowds showed up to watch the Travelers Championship Celebrity Pro-Am on Wednesday, and the field included a ton of UConn legends. Former men’s basketball stars Ray Allen and Scott Burrell teed off along with their former coach Jim Calhoun. Women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma and assistant Chris Dailey were also there, as was football coach Randy Edsall and former QB Dan Orlovsky.
(WTNH)–ESPN’s Chris Berman was emotional in his return to the Travelers Championship Celebrtiy Pro-Am, an event at which he’s become a regular over the years. Fans were there to support the legendary announcer and his family on Wednesday. It has been about a month now since his wife Katherine died in a car wreck near Woodbury.
(WTNH)–In celebration of her surpassing the all-time WNBA scoring record, we decided to take a look back at Diana Taurasi’s career at UConn. In this “UConn Flashback,” we take a trip back to 2004 to talk with Diana and some of her Huskies teammates about what makes her tick, and what makes her so great. We also asked what she thought about her standing among the greatest women’s college basketball players ever, and how she was able to stay so fun-loving and humble through it all.
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".
