As one of the original members of the Sportsnet broadcast team, Brad Fay has hosted a myriad of national and international sporting events over the course of his 25 year career since joining the network in 1998. Currently, sports fans can catch Fay hosting Toronto Raptors on Sportsnet broadcasts.
A native of Vancouver, BC, Fay jumpstarted his broadcast career in 1989 at Campbell River Radio where he worked as the News and Sports Director. Following his time in radio, Fay joined the writing staff at the Campbell River Mirror before signing on with the Kelowna Daily Courier soon thereafter. In addition to his work as a sportswriter for the Courier, Fay also called the play-by-play for several junior hockey games in Kelowna alongside now-fellow Sportsnet broadcaster Rick Ball. After spending four years in Kelowna, Fay stepped in front of the camera for BCTV Vancouver in 1997 as a sportscaster, a transition that would lead him to Sportsnet a year later.
Since signing on with Sportsnet in 1998, Fay has been at the forefront of some of Canada’s top sporting broadcasts, including NHL, NBA, MLB, soccer, rugby and golf. Fay has hosted several Rogers Cup and Davis Cup tennis for Sportsnet since 2011 and has covered numerous CIS Championships, including the Vanier Cup.
In addition to his work covering professional sports, Fay is also a 4-time Olympic Primetime host for Sportsnet during the 2010, 2014 and 2018 Winter Olympic Games and the 2012 and 2016 Summer Olympic Games.
