An aspiring, dedicated journalist from Pennsylvania's Anthracite Coal Region.
Currently, I am the Assistant News Editor at the Kutztown University of Pennsylvania's Keystone Newspaper, earning the position in my first semester of college. I cover whatever may need to be covered, whether it be foo...
A group from Matthew 24 Ministries gathered at the entrance to South Dining Hall on Nov. 30 to stage a protest. Much like previous groups to stage protests at KU, they came to spread a message of hate toward specific groups, such as muslims and feminists. Shortly after their arrival at around 12:00 p.m., an impromptu group of counter-protesters, many of whom were KU students, formed around the group.
Firefighters from Kutztown were dispatched to the Golden Bear Village South apartments for two separate incidents in three days. The first occurred on Friday, Oct. 27 shortly before 4:00 p.m. Crews were dispatched to Building 20 of the complex for a carbon monoxide alarm. Crews arrived on the scene shortly after, and were clear of the scene within 10 minutes of arrival. Assisting at that incident were officers from KU Public Safety, along with an ambulance from Kutztown Transport Service.
An early goal 4:31 into the first half was all it took to solidify KU’s victory in a defensive battle October 10 at Keystone Field. Sophomore defender Kaylee Kupiec scored that lone goal, her first of the season. Kupiec is the 13th player to score for the Golden Bears this season, adding to their PSAC-leading 38 total goals thus far. The undefeated KU squad outshot the Raiders of Shippensburg 31-7 throughout the game, but following Kupiec’s goal, the Raiders wouldn’t give an inch in scoring.
@dewppler@Breaky__@BayAreaBuggs@Polecat324 Never really "worked" there, haha. It's the station for the college I go to. Right now, besides that, I run an independent news website, and sometimes my video from that is picked up by the local ABC, NBC/CBS co-op, and an independent in Hazleton.
@Breaky__@JerryShackels@BayAreaBuggs@Polecat324 It really didn't matter to the conversation. You can get a degree in whatever you want, it doesn't mean you'll land a job in that field. My sociology professor this past semester went to law school. He's a sociology professor at a rural college.

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".
