Jay Onrait co-hosts the 1 a.m. ET weekday edition of SportsCentre alongside Dan O'Toole, entertaining viewers with his own brand of humour while delivering a complete summary of the day's sporting events to viewers. Viewers can also catch Onrait and O'Toole each morning as the 1 a.m. ET broadcast repeats on a loop until 1 p.m. ET the following day.

During the London 2012 Olympic Games, Onrait and O'Toole hosted SportsCentre live from Trafalgar Square. In 2010, Onrait served as co-host of Olympic Morning on CTV alongside Beverly Thomson for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.

A native of Athabasca, Alta., Onrait first joined TSN in 1996 as an editorial assistant while still in school. After graduating from Ryerson University in 1998 with a bachelor's degree in Radio and Television Arts, Onrait went on to become the sports director at a television station in Saskatoon, before spending two years as the host of the Big Breakfast on A-Channel.

Onrait joined NHL Network in 2001, serving as host of the network's flagship show NHL On The Fly as well as Molson That's Hockey 2. A year later, Onrait re-joined TSN in his current role on SportsCentre.

Onrait's work assignments over the years have included coverage of the NHL Trade Deadline, NBA Finals, Vanier Cup and in-studio host of Toronto Raptors broadcasts on TSN.

In 2011, Onrait was rewarded for his outstanding contributions to the world of sports with a Gemini Award for Best Sportscaster/Anchor. He was nominated in the same category the previous year.
