Barstool Miami Founder Dave Portnoy
Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy plans on moving his company from New York to Miami, where he already possesses a stunning waterfront mansion and recently purchased bayfront property worth $14 Million.

Early Life and Education
Portnoy was born and educated at Massachusetts’s Swampscott High School before continuing on to the University of Michigan where he earned a bachelor’s degree in education, in addition to receiving an MBA degree from Miami.
As a businessman, he is well known for his generous philanthropy. He has assisted various charities throughout the US. Additionally, his focus has always been on military veterans – on multiple occasions visiting them in Iraq.
Barstool Sports’ founder has come under scrutiny for alleged misogyny and online trolling, yet has defended himself by asserting it’s just locker room talk that shouldn’t be taken seriously. Furthermore, he was heavily criticized for calling ESPN reporter Sam Ponder a slut and suggesting women must “sex it up” to become successful.
Dave Portnoy is the creator and publisher of Barstool Sports, an immensely popular sports and pop culture blog which has evolved into a multi-million dollar digital media company. With millions of followers across social media channels like Twitter and podcasts such as ReWives Podcast with Bethenny Frankel where he voiced his opinions unapologetically, Dave has quickly established an enormous following and gained multimillion-dollar digital media company status.
TikTok personality Davey O is also well-known and enjoys a significant following on this platform, hosting both the Barstool Yak podcast and One Bite with Davey (reviewing pizza places around the country). Recently he has been considering Miami as a possible relocation location for his company; recently discussing this idea on his show while making references to Logan Paul’s Puerto Rico plans as an indicator.
Achievement and Honors
Barstool has proven itself immensely popular online. Their success can be attributed to providing people with an opportunity to laugh, discuss sports and gossip – something mainstream media no longer provides them. Barstool acts like an adult version of America’s Funniest Home Videos or early 90s ESPN; or perhaps more accurately like the new Playboy!
Recently, they expanded into video and podcasting programming, which propelled further growth and enabled them to offer video services on Apple TV and Roku devices.
TikTok and social media is ever-evolving, but LARP have managed to navigate it successfully and create a huge fan base despite attempts by weasels like LARP to bring them down. Over time they’ve grown even stronger and more loyal followers than before!
Barstool Sports founder has had an eventful personal life. He has been romantically linked to multiple women while also facing some controversy in his professional endeavors.
Recently, he appeared on Bethenny Frankel’s ReWives Podcast with an honest assessment of Real Housewives franchise. In that episode, he gave candid opinions regarding how it has affected him personally.
Dave Portnoy, founder of Barstool Sports, has recently been seen spending time together with a former Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader in Miami.
Page Six reports that Portnoy has been spending much of his time in Miami. Recently he dined at Komodo in Magic City where Jonathan “Foodgod” Cheban stopped by to meet him at his table! Additionally, he has been seen out with Shannon St. Clair, 24, an ex-cheerleader from Temple University.
David Portnoy is estimated to be worth an estimated $150 Million. Much of his fortune can be attributed to the success of Barstool Sports, the digital media conglomerate he co-founded in 2003 and which now operates on multiple channels, producing videos, podcasts and blogs about different topics.
Portnoy is involved in other businesses as well, according to CelebrityNetWorth he owns a property valued at $14 Million in Miami Morningside and another in Hamptons beach for 10 Million in Hamptons beach house.
Portnoy has pledged around $500,000 to the Barstool Fund, an investment capital fund created during the Covid-19 pandemic to support small businesses. He owns several investment properties across the US – one being worth $5 million alone in Boston – as well as owning investment properties himself.
