I'm busy chasing leads at WNYW (FOX5) and storms for The Weather Channel.
I've been a general assignment reporter at WNYW/FOX5 New York since June 2017.
I split my time there and at The Weather Channel, where I track storms and show how communities are affected by Mother Nature.
I've been part of...
- A couple from Houston is stranded in New York, fearing if they won't have a home to go back to. All they know is their neighborhood is under water. A group of Superstorm Sandy survivors is helping the couple through this desperate time. Kristin and Jahqia Harrison scroll through their social media and see that their Houston neighborhood is flooded. "At this moment we have no idea what our home looks like," Kristin said. "Any damage, vehicles nothing whatsoever."
- Times Square shined a light on the fight against pediatric cancer. For Cathleen Boorse and her daughter Hannah, their first experience in Times Square was honoring the 13-year-old girl and all children battling pediatric cancer. "I'm really excited and I'm really happy that my first time being in Times Square is for something so important and so personal to me," Hannah said last week. The Times Square Advertising Coalition illuminated nearly one dozen digital screens in gold.
- The sun will take center stage across the United States (and the rest of North America) as millions will witness a total solar eclipse on Monday, August 21, 2017. Excitement is building at the American Museum of Natural History on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is urging everyone to put away their smartphones and to get as close to the eclipse's path of totality as possible.
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".
