At DKPittsburghSports.com, we’re innovating the online journalism industry with independent sports reporting.
So, too, are we offering advertisers a vehicle unlike any other to reach our city’s sports fans.
This site/app, the first of its kind in the U.S., is the venture of award-winning columnist Dejan Kovacevic, who left newspapers after 25 years to build his own brand of online reporting of Pittsburgh’s major sports teams. It’s supported by subscriptions and sponsors, and it’s grown so explosively in the first three-plus years that it now employs a full-time staff of a dozen professional journalists and the biggest travel budget in local media.
And now, beginning in the fall of 2017, we’re adding a 24-hour digital radio station to offer even more benefits to our readers, even more avenues for advertisers. Directed by local radio veteran Tim Benz, the station will feature sports news, interviews, analysis and commentary produced by our experts. It’ll be available on multiple platforms, including our site/app.
With that addition of radio, DKPittsburghSports.com becomes a complete marketing solution for our partners. Full integration — a consistent message across radio, digital and social media — comes at one affordable price.
We’re equally proud of our relationships with our current sponsors — Allegheny Health Network, PNC Bank, GoToMeeting, Point Park University, NSSF, Leadership League, Hertz, Schneider Downs, Pittsburgh Riverhounds, Curtis Pharmacy, Visit Pittsburgh, Moon Golf Club, Express Employment Professionals, Shades on Point — as well as many others. In fact, we treat them like family. We’ve customized all advertising to meet their needs, from the conventional ads on the main site to the interactive banners on our hugely popular mobile app to all forms of social media.
