I agree - he was just doing Riverhounds play-by-play - DK's site is a step-up for him.

For everyone - does DK pay his staff salary or is it based on pageviews, etc? Or a combination of the two?

Did Yohe get a salary bump to leave the Trib or did he want to leave so badly because Mackey got the Pens beat writer job that he left for whatever he was offered?

Forget salary. Do you think what still qualifies as a start-up is offering any health benefits? Retirement? Anything like that.

Without knowing the writers' individual circumstances (could be on spouses insurance, etc.), a salary bump probably still doesn't compare to having other benefits from the P-G, Trib, etc. Would need to be a SIGNIFICANT bump to compensate for that.

Again, who knows what DK offers. But if you had to guess...

Nope pretty sure no past or current employee gets benefits of any sorts. Sad because DK can afford to send himself to Rio while his employees can't afford health insurance.
Especially considering AHN is a site sponsor, it shouldn't be that hard to broker a deal.

From what we can gather it's different for every employee. Yohe's apparently paid very well and salaried.

The others, the "littler" known writers, don't seem to be and probably on some type of pageview incentive deal. This prior thread had some specifics- http://www.voy.com/158430/21404.html

I'd imagine the more working class writers are also on an advertising incentive plan. DK's been on Twitter in the past tweeting he'll give any fan who wants to secure him site sponsors a percentage of the deal. I'd assume that'd extend to writers too.
