Broadway Langan’s, the birthplace of the Kelly Gang, is shutting down on Jan. 18 — the latest victim of rising rents. While the Kelly Gang Inc. has emerged as a charity that has raised close to $1 million for worthy causes over its decade-plus of life, in its earliest incarnation it was a social group composed of then top cop Ray Kelly and a gaggle of media people with the same surname.
Leon Cooperman, head of Omega Advisors, which until recently was the fifth-largest shareholder in Time Inc., has sold his entire stake in the publisher — snagging an estimated $92 million ahead of Meredith’s takeover of the publisher of Time, People, Sports Illustrated, In Style and other titles. Surprisingly, he sold at $18.55 a share, a premium over the $18.50 a share that Meredith is offering as part of its $2.8 billion takeover — now expected to close within 30 days.
Michael Ferro, the executive chairman of Tronc, is stirring newsroom resentment on both coasts of his far-flung newspaper chain. At the profitable Los Angeles Times, 350 editorial staffers are fuming as a rumored move of its headquarters circulated. One early plan featured a helicopter landing plan atop a new HQ — presumably to ferry top executives as they would commute to and from Tronc’s Chicago offices.
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".
