It’s a big day for everybody here at Pittsburgh Sports Now because today is our 1-year anniversary. Yep, I’m happy and proud to say that we’ve been able to get through one year of being up and running.
I know some had doubts of whether we’d be able to keep things going and obviously we have. Along the way, we’ve been able to hire talented people like Alan Saunders, Harry Psaros, Tim Benz, WPIAL Insider, David Hague and Francis Guarneri. And the plan is to add to the that staff in year two.
In order to be able to hire these people we needed support from sponsors and luckily we received that from great businesses like Pro Tapes and Specialties, Thompson Law Group, Cupka’s and Archie’s. Thank you to Ed, Brian, Rich and Mike. Your support and faith in us means a lot.
However, for us to continue to grow and ultimately sustain ourselves, we need more support from advertisers. To that end, we’ve hired Jen Krenitsky our as Director of Sales. She’s currently in talks with a bunch of businesses trying to get them to join our website. If you’d like to talk to her about advertising packages that we’re offering you can reach her on a Twitter at @jkren82 or Direct Message us at @PghSportsNow.
I’d also like to thank Joe Steigerwald, the owner and brains behind Pittsburgh Sports Now. Joe was the designer of the site, keeps us up and running and does all the behind the scenes that nobody recognizes. Thanks Steig.
Finally, we’d like to thank you for taking the time to check us out on a daily basis. When we started this one year ago, Joe and I had no idea if it would work and if anyone would read our material. We’re so glad that you have and we’ve been pleasantly surpised at how much you’ve done so. In our first year, all of our material has generated over 4.3 million page views. Thank you!
