Sophie Lui

Sophie Lui is the Anchor of Global News at 5 and Co-Anchor of Global News Hour at 6. She previously co-hosted Global News Morning and Global Weekend Mornings and still has not quite made up for the 10 years of lost sleep.  

Born and raised in the Lower Mainland, she has been a news junkie for as long as she can remember. A graduate of BCIT’s Broadcast Radio program, she worked at several news radio stations before turning to television news at CHEK-TV in Victoria and then moving back to Vancouver to work at Global BC. 

Sophie has received numerous awards throughout her career, including the Leo Award for Best Host for her travel program Get Lost and a 2023 Canadian Screen Award, along with her colleagues, for Best Local Newscast for Global BC News Hour at 6. She also received the 2023 recipient of the Shelley Fralic Award from The Jack Webster Foundation. 

Career highlights include her work for Global’s 16×9 and The New Reality – especially her stories about medically assisted death and green burials. She also enjoys hosting election night coverage and diving into the drama of BC politics.   

In addition to journalism, Sophie is active in the community, serving on the board of the BGC South Coast BC and on the cabinet of BC Cancer Foundation’s Beyond Belief Campaign. 

When she is not working, Sophie enjoys travelling, cycling, listening to music, reading, and procrastinating.
