Our independent outlet, the first of its kind in North America, was created in 2014 by Dejan Kovacevic, a veteran of 25 years with Pittsburgh's major newspapers who was recognized in 2012 and 2013 as one of the country’s top five sports columnists. He's joined on staff by three veteran beat writers -- Dale Lolley on Steelers. Chris Bradford on Penguins, John Perrotto on Pirates -- plus Taylor Haase, Hunter Homistek, Christopher Carter and photographer Matt Sunday.
We cover every game and every practice, we travel everywhere the teams do, and we're fully credentialed by the NFL, NHL, Major League Baseball and International Olympic Committee.

Superb Content and Great App!!
This is the “ultimate must have” for Steelers, Penguins, and Pirates fans. I love the quality and quantity of Pittsburgh Sports news from DK and staff. These are seasoned journalists that give up to the minute news updates, insights, and opinion. If you are following Pittsburgh’s professional sports, you won’t find a better staff that brings the best quality sports news exactly when it’s happening.
I’m from Illinois and there is no other place that I can get this large quantity and quality of information for such a nominal subscription price. The content is heavy. The staff is approachable. They even make time to meet subscribers at sporting events. And the customer support and customer service is crazy good. I’m thankful to have found them and you will be too.
(Now if I could just understand what a “yinzer” is. I need to travel to Pittsburgh to find out.)
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.
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.
