Meet Kapuso's sports buddy
(The Philippine Star) - September 1, 2010 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines – As part of its 60th anniversary celebration, Kapuso network has been introducing new faces in the entertainment industry.  The latest among them is today’s most sought-after basketball hotshot Jai Reyes.

Jai, a former Ateneo Blue Eagles team captain, is now included in the roster of talents of GMA Artist Center.   He is the newest member of Manny Pacquiao’s gym in the Sunday night sitcom Show Me Da Manny.

Aside from Show Me Da Manny, Jai is also one of the newest kabarkada in the long-running morning show Unang Hirit where he was launched last summer as the newest sports buddy of the program’s sports features.

The 23-year-old cager had a brief hosting stint in Pinoy Records with his special segment called Jai in Action.  Plus, the basketball star had a hilarious guesting in Bubble Gang.

Before his TV stint, Jai has been playing competitive basketball for nearly his entire life.  Small beginnings and a strong foundation through Milo programs at his transitional stages have led up to his UAAP career as champion and team captain.  

A graduate of BS Communications Technology Management at the Ateneo de Manila University, Jai has just finished playing for Philippine Basketball League (PBL).
