Cover Reveal: Jay Onrait’s ANCHORBOY is available for pre-order

AnchorboyThe former TSN Sportscentre anchor and current Fox Sports 1 anchor has a book coming out with HarperCollins Canada. He wrote it all himself and it’s one of the most honest and funny books I’ve worked on.

From Amazon:

Nine out of ten people would say Jay Onrait changed Canadian sportscasting. The first nine are right. The tenth just doesn’t get sports.

From the 2011 Gemini Award-winning sportscaster comes a book of essays and stories featuring the rise of a small town prairie boy and his journey to broadcasting in the big city. But, it’s not what you think. These are not tales of triumph, but the stories his fans and viewers have been waiting for.

Anchorboy teaches aspirational sportscasters that if you make enough mistakes you’ll land the right job. It explains Jay’s philosophy on personality-based sports broadcasting and how he changed sportscasting forever. A behind-the-scenes look at what it’s like to work at TSN—it’s a balance of humour, pop culture, and sports.

Specifically, you’ll read about:

  • Jay being sexually harassed at TSN by a senior every day for ten years
  • Jay being beaten up by a professional MMA fighter while hosting Winnipeg’s The Big Breakfast
  • Jay’s nervous interview with one of his comedy heroes, Will Ferrell
  • Jay’s own personal Worst Christmas Eve Ever

 

These are the stories that will make you laugh. Mostly at Jay’s expense.
