Evanka Osmak, anchor of the weekday prime time slot of Sportsnet Central 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. Once she earned her civil engineering degree, she did what most engineers do…she switched careers to become a television broadcaster!
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 2016 and 2011 Rogers Cup and the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games. 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 lives in Toronto with her husband, Adam and son, George.
