Contrary to what many think they remember and the mythology that has grown to match the its symbolism, Billie Jean King's prime-time tennis victory over Bobby Riggs was not the biggest thing on television 44 years ago. ABC's "Battle of the Sexes" spectacle was not the highest-rated program of the week it aired. It was not even the highest-rated program of the night. That was CBS's airing of 1967's "Bonnie and Clyde," which began an hour later than the live tennis special.
After a long day, you kick off your shoes, crack open a beer, turn on Fox News or CNN or MSNBC for some politics. You shouldn't have to worry you'll be blindsided by someone injecting sports into the conversation. Sure, everyone has their teams, and that's fine. But how many of us lately have had to start avoiding certain friends, co-workers or relatives because they won't shut up about their fantasy teams, moaning about a missed call or bad trade, rubbing our face in the fact their team won?
CBS Radio’s WBBM-AM 780 – and its WCFS-FM 105.9 simulcast – will remain the radio home to the Chicago Bears.

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
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".
