Subject: Just to be sure we have this straight;

Dejan Kovacevic fired his Pitt writer (who has a young daughter and a fiance who recently had a miscarriage) and then his "national search" results in hiring someone working at a paper in Washington County who is less experienced and far less talented than Alan.

Let's not forget that DK fired Alan BY TEXT MESSAGE

I have a very low opinion of Dejan - had a number of testy email exchanges with him while he was at the Trib - but never thought even he would be so cowardice to fire a staffer by text. I wonder if his "team" knows that? That's just sad.

Really nothing else to add here. Alan's reaction said it all. Feel bad for the guy. https://twitter.com/asaunders_pgh/status/733434662392090624

It's one thing to develop a hard-working, earnest young guy, but stop with the talent-jumps-off-the-page BS, Dejan. The kid's first comment on your welcoming thread was "thanks for the complement."
I just hope you don't end up firing this kid, too, because he's just not going to deliver on your hype. I hope you haven't gone completely off the rails.

DK = 0 Class.

Reminds me of Scaife's early publishing days. Lots of people came and went.

A positive is that I did see Alan was covering the Pirates over the weekend for the AP.

DK was very quick to come here and defend himself when he first started.
Lately, total silence.

The begging for a Cup Finals coverage sponsor is a bad look. Subscriptions numbers are low obviously.

What's going on? Can't be cheap to book flights to San Jose on short notice.
