TSN’s Jay Onrait and Dan O’Toole headed to Los Angeles


TSN sports highlight broadcast duo Jay Onrait and Dan O’Toole are leaving Canadian TV.

The popular sportcasters are headed to Los Angeles later this summer to host a nightly sportscast for Fox Sports 1.

Onrait and O’Toole will continue to host Sportscentre on TSN through late June, until after the current NHL Stanley Cup championship round concludes.

Then they’ll be headed stateside, bringing their iconic show about sport highlights to Fox Sports.

“It is with mixed emotions that all of us at TSN and Bell Media bid farewell to Jay and Dan. They have made remarkable contributions to TSN and have helped solidify Sportscentre as Canada’s clear choice for sports news,” said Phil King, president, CTV programming and sports, in a statement on Friday.

O’Toole, who has worked at TSN for a decade, praised the sports specialty channel for creating the popular broadcast duo.

“If it wasn’t for TSN, I would never have been paired with Jay. The fact that TSN took a chance and let us do our own thing every night on Sportscentre is something we will always be thankful for,” he said.

Onrait, who started at TSN in 1996 as an editorial assistant on Sportsdesk, before eventually teaming up with O’Toole.
