Evanka Osmak, anchor of the weekday prime time slot of Sportsnet Central – Sportsnet’s nightly sports news program – joined the Sportsnet team on April Fool’s Day 2007.
Evanka initially pursued a career in civil engineering after earning a Bachelor of Applied Science in Civil Engineering Degree from Queens University. While working as a civil engineer, she realized her true passion rested with broadcasting. Returning to school, Evanka attended Seneca College at York University where she earned a Radio and Television Broadcasting diploma and later landed a position with JACK-FM in Orillia, ON as a news announcer. Moving onto KYMA-TV (NBC) in Yuma, Arizona a year later, Evanka worked for two years as a Morning Show host before returning to Ontario in 2007 when she stepped in front of the sports television camera and signed on with Sportsnet.
Evanka’s career highlights with Sportsnet include covering the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games and reporting courtside for Rogers Cup. When not covering the latest sports stories on-air, she is a member on the Special Olympics Ontario board, acts as an ambassador for Golf Fore the Cure alongside Golf Canada and is a committee member of the Sports Media Canada Luncheon.
Evanka resides in Toronto with her husband, Adam. Not only does she love watching sports, but enjoys being active. She keeps herself busy by running, golfing, playing tennis and practicing Pilates.
