Maggie Gray spent most of the year doing what everyone else in local sports media was doing: Speculating about Mike Francesa’s successors in afternoon drive time on WFAN. “This has been fun New York gossip for a really long time,” she said. “I was talking to people: ‘Hey, what do you think? What do you think?’”What she never thought was what came next: Mark Chernoff, the station’s vice president for programming, called. “I was shocked,” she said. “I asked him: ‘Is this real?
The Islanders either are or are not the first NHL team based in Brooklyn. That such a seemingly simple matter could be debatable speaks to the quirky charm of “Only the Dead Know the Brooklyn Americans,” a documentary now available on video on demand that chronicles their one and only year in existence, 1941-42. After finishing in last pace that year - the Rangers finished first - they disbanded, with a plan to return after World War II, which (spoiler alert) they never did.
Mike Francesa’s farewell-to-WFAN tour visited his native Long Island on Wednesday night with an event in his honor dubbed “A Night to Remember” at the Tilles Center on the campus of LIU Post. Coming exactly one month before his final show on Dec. 15, Francesa said the event marked a milestone in his long goodbye, signaling he is nearing the finish line.
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".
