MADISON (WKOW) -- The U.S. territory of Guam still on high alert as North Korea threatens to fire missiles near the island. With family and work ties to Guam, Stoughton native, Chris Lund, is telling his story. "Dane County is about 1,000 square miles in size, so you could fit seven Guam's in Dane County," Lund, a civil and environmental engineer, explained. "So it's small," he said about a country he grew to love a long time ago.
LAKE GENEVA (WKOW) -- It's been five years since a devastating shooting at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek. Six people were killed and others were hurt, including a police officer, when a white supremacist walked into the temple and started shooting. Two young heroes were honored with awards for their bravery during the chaotic nightmare.
RICHLAND CENTER (WKOW) -- Just one week ago, farmers across Richland County were worried about serious flooding. But as water levels return to normal, a new threat emerges. "They're everywhere!" Sunset Orchard's Mark Vignieri said while showing off the bugs on his wine grape vineyard. "The wet weather that we've had has been a big friend to them, enemy to us," he said. The farmer knows the warm weather coupled with the flooding created the perfect storm for the pests.
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".
