Global BC sports anchor Barry Deley enters the BC Children’s Hospital Dream Lottery every year, but he never dreamed he’d actually win it. He did — to the tune of $2 million, or a $2.5 million condo (his choice). All of this was announced by his news colleagues, live on the air. In fact, they called Deley during the broadcast, live, to tell him.
Global BC hosts Sophie Lui and Squire Barnes were stunned to discover sports anchor Barry Deley had won the jackpot prize as they presented their Monday morning show from Vancouver.
Barnes then phoned his friend live on air to tell the new millionaire what had happened, to which a delighted Deley replied: “You know people are going to think this is kind of fishy don’t you?”
