David Portnoy net worth: David Portnoy is a sports media figure and blogger who has a net worth of $8 million. David Portnoy is probably most famous for being the founder and general manager of a website called Barstool Sports. Actually, on the site he goes by the title "El Presidente". The site is a mix of snarky sports coverage and attractive women, with at least one journalist describing it as a mixture between "ESPN and Girls Gone Wild." This combination is apparently working well, as BarstoolSports is one of the most popular independent sports blogs on the internet, and it's earning Portnoy a lot of "heat" in the industry. It's not an easy life, though – as he is known to put in 10+ hour days, while still working on both Saturdays and Sundays. Portnoy's first effort to start his own business was in the world of gambling, but it was obviously not as successful as the venture he's now famous for. His efforts to start a gambling based publication were stymied by the sense that he would need experience as a dealer before becoming established. In 2003, Portnoy published the first issue of what would become the Barstool, but it had none of the trademark commentary and scantily clad women that BarstoolSports is now known for. His success in the world of sports blogging was a little while in coming, but it's certainly been worth it for David Portnoy. In January 2016, it was reported that Barstool had been acquired by Peter Chernin's Digital Group for $10 – $15 million.
