As The Great British Bake Off signs off its final BBC series with record viewing figures, Channel 4 executives will be plotting how to recoup their controversial £75m outlay on the UK's most popular TV show.
BT has taken a £145m hit after uncovering "inappropriate management behaviour" at its Italian division. The company, which said the non-cash charge would not affect full-year figures, appointed external advisers to assist with a full investigation into BT Italia. BT said its initial internal inquiry found "certain historical accounting errors" and it had "reassessed certain areas of management judgment".
The chief executive of O2 has said the company is "prepared but not committed" to a £10bn initial public offering (IPO), citing issues including the state of the UK economy, which has been weakened by fears of the impact of Brexit.
The culture secretary has formally started the hunt for the chair of the new BBC board offering a £100,000-a-year salary, £10,000 less than was taken home by former BBC Trust chair Rona Fairhead, with candidates requiring skills including "securing value for money".
A Hooch ad featuring Vine and YouTube star Joe Charman has been banned after complaints his "juvenile" trick broke rules for marketing alcohol to under-18s. Charman - whose catchphrase is "Yeah I got skills ... What you gonna do about it?" - ran a promotion for Hooch that appeared on his Facebook page.
Netflix has admitted that it was too slow out of the blocks to enter a bidding war for The Great British Bake Off as the US streaming giant didn't seriously believe the hit show would leave the BBC.
ITV is to cut 120 jobs due to "political and economic uncertainty" as Brexit leavesUK broadcasters facing the worst year for advertising since 2009. The cuts come after Adam Crozier, ITV's chief executive, warned in July that following the Brexit vote the broadcaster would look to make £25m in overhead savings next year.
Channel 4 is to start bids to sponsor the Great British Bake Off at as much as £8m as advertisers salivate at the prospect of cooking up the first commercial relationship with the biggest show on UK TV.
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
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".
