Well that certainly didn’t take long! After being ousted at FOX Sports 1, popular Canadian sports anchors Jay Onrait and Dan O’Toole have been reacquired by their former employer, TSN.
The company announced the news earlier this morning on social media.
The duo also appeared during TSN’s TradeCentre coverage and acknowledged in the conversation how excited they were to return home and call highlights again and be seen by an actual audience. They also poked some fun at the Embrace Debate culture at FS1 and shared their enthusiasm about being able to once again follow and discuss the sport of hockey.
Onrait and O’Toole had a lot of success at TSN prior to moving to FS1. However, a change in content strategy at FOX made them the odd pair out following recent changes to the network’s on-air schedule.
They’re expected to have their own show on the network starting in September. No word on how they’ll be utilized in the meantime. Regardless, when two talented anchors do good work, and land in a situation that doesn’t suit their talents, this serves as a good reminder that you can always go home again.
