From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jason Ruta (born August 7, 1979 in Springfield, Manitoba) is a Canadian television personality, who from September 2007 to August 2009 cohosted the entertainment newsmagazine E! News Weekend on the now defunct E! Canada.

Ruta first came to prominence as a participant in the second season of U8TV: The Lofters. The show followed the lives of eight Canadians living and working in a fully wired loft, TV studio, producing and hosting shows. Unlike season one's Mathieu Chantelois, who was openly gay from the very beginning of his time on the show, Ruta came out as gay during his time in the loft. He hosted the Gemini-nominated magazine series So Gay TV for U8TV and PrideVision, but later left The Lofters after being voted out by viewers.

He subsequently worked as a radio DJ for CING-FM in Hamilton. Ruta is also credited with acting in several feature films, theatre and commercial work. He attended the Vancouver Film School in spring 2007.

His cohost on E! News Weekend, Arisa Cox, was also a former U8TV lofter, who appeared during that show's first season.

Ruta joins Jessi Cruickshank of MTV Live in a list of people who have hosted YTV's Weird on Wheels road show; he did so in 2006.
