VICTORIA - Well known BCTV News anchor and reporter, Sophie Lui, will join Ed Watson on CH Television's flagship 5 to 6:30 evening news program starting Wednesday, October 6th.

The move is the latest in a string of high-profile journalist swaps going on in the British Columbia capital. As reported by, Watson just recently came over from CTV Vancouver, while VI has claimed three journos from the CH fold (Hudson Mack, Meribeth Burton and Moira McLean).

"Sophie and Ed will be a formidable news team," said CH news director Rob Germain. "They are both highly respected journalists who have earned the trust of viewers on Vancouver Island. Their strength as anchors is rooted in their years of experience as reporters."

Sophie Lui is a familiar face and voice to Island viewers. While she began her broadcast career in radio, Lui joined CH in 1999 as anchor for CH News Final (formerly known as CHEK TV Late News) and hosted a daily segment on CH News at 5. Lui returns to CH after two years anchoring the Weekend BCTV Morning and Noon News on Global and reporting during the week.

Ed Watson's appointment was announced September 17th. He returns to CH after seven years as Legislature Bureau Chief for CTV. Watson also worked for CH from 1992 to 1997.

"I'm excited to be coming back to the island and to be working with a journalist of Ed's caliber", said Lui. "I'm looking forward to rejoining my colleagues at CH. They've always been such a great team to work with."
