Sophie Lui no longer sets her alarm for 2:30 a.m. as she now co-anchors Global News Hour at 6 with Chris Gailus. She also co-anchors Global News at 10 and Global News at 11 with Jay Durant.
Her favourite part of the job is the opportunity to learn something new every day.
She loves that she has an occupational excuse to call just about anybody to ask just about any question.
Sophie was born and raised in the Lower Mainland and has been a news junkie for as long as she can remember. She attended BCIT and graduated from the Broadcast Radio program. From there, she worked at several news radio stations like CKNW, CKIQ-Kelowna, and CFAX-Victoria - before turning toward television news at CHEK-TV in Victoria. She has been with the Global BC family for several years and previously was the co-anchor of the Morning News alongside Steve Darling.
Sophie’s hobbies include travelling, listening to music, reading, and procrastinating.
