David Portnoy Net Worth
David Portnoy net worth and salary: David Portnoy is an American sports media figure and blogger who has a net worth of $12 million. David Portnoy, who was born on March 22, 1977, is probably most famous for being the founder and general manager of the website Barstool Sports. On the site he goes by the title "El Presidente" or "Stool Presdidente". 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 sports blogs on the internet. In the site's early days Portnoy was known to regularly 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. His efforts to start a gambling based publication were stymied by the sense that he would need experience as a dealer before becoming successful. 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 known for today.
Chernin Acquisition: In January 2016, it was reported that approximately 50% of Barstool had been acquired by Peter Chernin's Digital Group for $10 – $15 million. Portnoy remains 100% in control of the company's content which now includes podcasts, TV shows and more. Today Portnoy runs a pizza review series called "One Bite with Davey Pageviews". The unofficial goal of the show is to review every pizza place in Manhattan.
Portnoy was married to Renee Satherthwaite from 2009 to 2017.
