LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – July 18, 1922 – it was a scratchy statement, WHAS joined the airwaves. “This is WHAS the radio telephone broadcasting station of the Courier Journal and the Louisville Times in Louisville, Kentucky”Spoken through an old microphone and heard on a box, WHAS would carry folks through the good times and the bad. The station broadcast life-saving information during the Great Flood of 1937 and the deadly tornado outbreak in 1974.
MOUNT WASHINGTON, Ky. (WHAS11) – Mount Washington’s iconic Donut King will reopen next Tuesday, per a post on the company’s Facebook page. “In one week, Donut King will be re-opening,” the post said. “Same name, same great recipe!”The store has been closed since October 2016, when it became the center of a shooting investigation that remains unsolved today.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Clicks were the sound of the summer in 1987 as Indiana rolled out its seatbelt law on July 1. It was a big change for Hoosiers – at the time studies suggested only 20 percent of Indiana drivers were buckled up. The law required anyone in the front seat of a car or bus to wear a seatbelt but any vehicle with a "truck" license plate was exempt and enforcement was, by law, an afterthought.
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".
