Maureen returned to her hometown of Charlotte to join WBTV in the summer of 2004. She co-anchors the 5pm and 6pm news with Paul Cameron Monday through Friday. She also solo anchors PrimeTime, Charlotte's only newscast at 7pm Monday through Friday.
The Second Harvest Food Bank Harvest Feast Food Drive got off to a fun start Friday morning at Stonecrest shopping center. The area near the Stonecrest Harris Teeter is set up for family fun with all kinds of activities to encourage families to come out this weekend and next with the kids and donate. The Harvest Feast Food Drive helps provide all the fixings for a Thanksgiving or Christmas meal to thousands at risk for hunger over the holiday season.
More than 4,000 people gathered in Roamer Bearden Park Saturday night for the 2017 Light the Night Charlotte put on by The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of North Carolina. The fun began at 4:30 p.m. and ended after a walk through uptown with fireworks to cap things off. It is a moving event and a beautiful way to lift up those battling cancer, those who have survived it, and those who are no longer with us. This was the 12th year LLS has put on ‘Light the Night’.
On occasion, someone will come up and say, “Did you every anchor the news in Chicago?” Maybe they’ll say they watched me in NYC. It’s almost always followed by the question, “So what brought you to Charlotte?”Same response every time: “This is home. I was born here. I grew up here. I went to school here, I’m a WC Lion! Class of ’81! My entire family graduated from CMS... all NINE of us!”This is a much different city than the one I left at 18-years-old for 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".
