Global B.C. has announced some significant changes to its newscasts, replicating rival CTV's approach of having two anchors for the 6 p.m. program.
Sophie Lui spent years co-anchoring the Morning News with Steve Darling.
Now, she's moving to the News Hour with anchor Chris Gailus, effective September 8.
In addition, Lui will co-anchor the 11 p.m. newscast with Jay Durant.
The 11 p.m. anchor, Anne Drewa, is being redeployed as a consumer reporter.
Darling will remain on the Morning News as the station director, Jill Krop, searches for a new co-host.
Global B.C.'s moves come in the wake of CBC News Vancouver's appointment of Andrew Chang as the supper-hour newscaster and CTV's recent loss of consumer reporter Lynda Steele to CKNW Radio.
