Sonali started at CBC in 2000, working for Daybreak and Homerun in various roles from researcher and traffic reporter to story producer for the federal and provincial elections. In 2005, she took on the role of sports reporter on Daybreak.
Sonali built a solid reputation in radio and television sports, reporting both locally and nationally on professional and amateur sports, including the Stanley Cup Playoffs and the Women's World Cup of Soccer in Germany in 2011. (Sonali is still a huge sports fan and regularly yells at the television when the Habs are on.)
Sonali does stand-up comedy in her spare time. She is also an avid cook and a voracious reader. She grew up on Montreal's West Island and graduated from Concordia University with a double major in Journalism and Communications.
