Subject: DK hires a guy from Tennessee

Dustin Dopirak now covers the Steelers for DK. He was a college beat writer in Tennessee. Color me unimpressed.

Does DD know he'll be terminated by DK in 4-5 weeks?

This has to be considered laughable for those looking for good steelers coverage. The toughest beat (by DKS own admission) goes to a college writer from Tennessee. Yeah. Not gunna work.

Kids looking for a break work cheap. If they don't get that far, they can always work for DK. For a while.

Isn't this guy a former Tribune-Review high school writer and he is from here?

Actually he's from Irwin.

He went to Penn State, was the primary beat reporter on Indiana University athletics in Indiana, and then Tennessee.

Hes won seven Associated Press Sports Editors awards for beat writing and in other categories.

Another DK hire saying the new guy is better than anything going - if the guy covered the Titans, it might work.

Covering college sports exclusively then being thrown into a high profile job covering a major pro team just screams theres gonna be a transition period but hes giving two weeks notice ( a shot at Mackey but can you blame him, I'd want away from the site's owner as quick as possible too) so thats a good thing.

I'm surprised he didn't let Benz cover that beat. Surely he's not paying him just for a podcast?

Im sure Benz is getting paid per podcast and I that the financial arrangement is on the low-end to benefit the site but Benz probably is looking at every podcast as a resume builder that he can put out there for prospective employers.

I am curious to see how long this marriage can last because both guys are Type-A personalizes with the owner being a control freak.

Benz was not universally endorsed by the subscribers when his hire was announced either which I am sure took the owner by surprise since he is used to being worshiped by a certain segment of his subscribers.
