This new app, the only one a Pittsburgh sports fan will need, is finally here!

DK Pittsburgh Sports, the first independent sports media outlet of its kind in North America, was created in 2014 by Dejan Kovacevic, an award-winning columnist and veteran of 25 years with Pittsburgh's major newspapers. He's joined on our staff by three beat writers -- Dale Lolley on Steelers, Dave Molinari on Penguins, Alex Stumpf on Pirates -- plus Tom Reed, Taylor Haase, Noah Hiles and Christopher Carter.

We cover the Steelers, Penguins, Pirates, Pitt football and basketball, and Duquesne basketball. That means every game and every practice. We travel everywhere the teams do, fully credentialed by the NFL, NHL, Major League Baseball and International Olympic Committee.

Now, with this custom, state-of-the-art app, we're offering more quality and quantity than ever on a superior platform aimed at being a Pittsburgh sports fan's one-stop shop. Get all the news, opinion, analysis, visuals, podcasts and video programs, while also checking live boxscores, standings, statistics and schedules for all the teams we cover. And if that sounds like too much to track, set alerts per your own preferences, and we'll reach out with only what you want.

Speaking of reaching out, join our commenting section to be part of a worldwide community of Pittsburgh sports fans, now spanning more than 150 countries. And if you like what you read, offer a cup of coffee!

Our slogan for years has been 'coverage that connects.' We'd like to think that connection's now stronger than ever.

Constantly Improved

The app has worked great for me. Because it is a new platform, the app evidently has had issues (I never experienced any) in the past but the DK team is very responsive, works with the developer to quickly resolve them and they report on the status on the site regularly. They’re also consistently working to enhance the user experience. Hence the 5 stars. The quality of the content is a bargain for the price, and a bonus is being able to post on the comment section and exchange reviews with other loyal Pittsburgh fans.

Reader Beware ,

Great Writers, just avoid DKs ego and it’s a great site.

I’ve been a subscriber since almost the beginning, I was actually drawn to the site after Dejan left the Trib and I wanted to keep reading his columns. As time has gone on, the staff has grown and there are some really talented and dedicated Beat Writers covering each team. The Beat Writers get 5 stars, no doubt. They’re physically at every game, you get quick updates, and unique content often. I don’t think you’ll find better coverage for all the local teams. As for the creator/columnist, DK: he gets 1 Star. What started out with awesome columns for each team with u okie perspectives and topics has turned into “I told ya so’s” of him just referencing his own predictions, patting himself on the back, and then trying to argue with any readers in the comments - or sometimes even in follow up columns - when someone disagrees with him. The COVID-19 pandemic also seems to have brought the worst of this habit out, as his columns have become more about him playing the role of public health expert (whether he’ll admit it or not) and less and less about sports. I’m probably going to remain a subscriber solely off the hard work the other writers add to the site, but DK himself has nearly driven me away half a dozen times, at least.

Not what it used to be

Gave it two stars because Molinari is there and DK does write some good stuff occasionally. Pirates coverage is terrible, Lolley might be the biggest Steelers homer I’ve read, I don’t read Haase’s information because it’s usually bad and I can find the information an hour before. DK seems to be more interested in podcasting anymore.

The new app is a train wreck. Can’t find articles, can’t get basic information. I’d cancel my subscription but I can’t find billing information on the new site/app to cancel or see how much time is left on my subscription. Can’t get an answer through support (5 emails sent without a response and counting) my questions in the comments section get deleted. Terrible customer support.
