I bet this is one move his lunatics aren't thrilled about. At least they can express their anger at foam bricks.

Interesting that instead of a full blown internet radio station, like the Trib they went with 15 minute podcasts.

Would like less Syracuse and more Pitt.

Dejan didn't hire Benz.

He merely gave Benz a platform for his podcasts. Benz has to sell all of his own ads and sponsors and then keeps what he sells and of course, DK gets a little piece of the pie.

Dejan may be a lot of things, he is also turning out to be a very smart businessman.

That's very debatable.

Let's revisit this opinion in a year.

When will you folks get over the DK bashing? Hardly a fan of his management style but as an enterprise, is there ANYONE in this market and maybe anyone nationally ... ANYONE ... that has pulled off something even remotely close to this? If it shutters tomorrow, it's already a rousing success.

"If it shutters tomorrow, it's already a rousing success."

On what basis? On the unverified numbers that DK provides? And if it did shutter tomorrow (six months is a more likely time frame) how would it be a success, much less a "rousing" success?

So Josh Yohe, Mark Kabobly and all those people that quit good jobs to join DK were either bamboozled or to dumb to know what they were doing? They joined without a clue as to how much the DK enterprise was making? Or DK lied to them about how much it would make?

I doubt very much that they had much of a choice did they? These are not the most talented writers that the city has ever seen. With the Trib failing and maybe the PG not far behind, what would they do for a living? If they can buy some time to figure out their future, why not join a blog?

They didnt quit good jobs. The trib is dying a slow death - Kaboly jumped when a buyout was offered. Yohe was ticked he didnt become main Pens beat guy and didn't want to work there anymore. Hey, maybe DK's site will be here in 10 years but the fact remains that these threads thrive here because Dejan follows a scorched earth policy and has alienated or ticked off a lot of people. Plus, he cares very much what people think of him.

Nice how DK gets his buds to post here and make his case for him. If he's that fabulously successful, he shouldn't care what anyone says here. But obviously he does.

Good idea, he should hit almost 50,000 subscribers by then.
