When Andrew Carter first went on the air of his CJAD morning show last year and shared with listeners that he had been battling depression, it was hard to believe. I go way back to university with Andrew and he has always been one of the bubblier individuals you’d meet, something which comes through loud and clear as he commands his show.“I was diagnosed with depression about seven years ago,” Carter told me in a chat last week.
On the eve of the Montreal Canadiens 2017-18 season, there is something terribly missing and no I am not talking about PK Subban.The superb pre and post-game reports on CTV from Brian Wilde are gone following the station’s announcement last spring that they were abolishing the entire sports department. I never watch sportscasts for the scores. However, in the case of Wilde he and analyst Francois Gagnon set the stage for the game and did marvelous recaps.
There was a time when our mainstream local TV stations, like the old CFCF and CBC, had all kinds of made in Montreal produced programs. With the exception of Global TV’s Focus Montreal, it seems to be up to cable TV to pipe in. Bell Media gave us a sampling for a bit, but leading the way these days is Videotron.Joining Richard Dagenais’ City Life on MAtv Tuesday, September 26 (7:30 pm) will be a show appropriately called Montrealers.
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".
