This week, The Press of Atlantic City enters into a new printing relationship with the Star-Ledger in Newark. For the past several years, our newspaper has been printed by Gannett, first in Freehold, then later in Cherry Hill. After our contract ended, we needed to find a new printer for our daily publication.And we are pleased to announce that our first newspaper printed in Newark will be published on Tuesday.There are some advantages, and some disadvantages, with our new arrangement.
Last Saturday, when staff was working to keep readers updated on the incoming snow storm, somebody ordered pizza for the newsroom. Meteorologist Joe Martucci went with an editor to the lobby to help carry the boxes in.“Hey, I know you. You’re that weather guy!” said the driver.When the pizza guy knows who you are, you have made it.Having everyone know who our meteorologist is has been my goal since I first hired one back in 2015.
When I arrived in South Jersey almost four years ago, I spent one-on-one time with each staff member in the newsroom, as has been my habit in every market that I’ve worked.In different conversations, several women brought up the fact that I am the first female executive editor in the 122-year history of The Press.
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".
