: The full exclusive interview will air live on NBC 5 News at 10 p.m. Wednesday. A live stream will be available right here. Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson is about to face one of the biggest personal challenges in his life – and he’s not afraid to talk about it. The city’s top cop opened up in a new exclusive interview with NBC 5 about his upcoming kidney transplant while also revealing two other major life changes he says will be happening soon.
Supt. Eddie Johnson, in an exclusive interview with NBC 5 Wednesday, finally revealed when he is scheduled to receive his kidney transplant. "The surgery is set for Wednesday, the 30th of August," Johnson said. It's a date that Johnson has been preparing for for months - and a procedure that will save his life. His very private health battle quickly became public in January when he almost fainted at a news conference.
Chicago's top cop has made a lot of announcements this week, but it appears he has just one more to share. During an exclusive interview with NBC 5 Wednesday, Supt. Eddie Johnson revealed that his son Daniel, currently an elementary school teacher, could soon follow in his father's footsteps. Johnson told NBC 5's Zoraida Sambolin that his son is going through the vetting process where candidates are picked to become new recruits.
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".
