Susan Li was born in China, on 1 May 1985, so under the zodiac sign of Taurus – she is now holding both Canadian and Chinese nationalities, and came under the spotlight after becoming a journalist for the Fox Business Network.

Childhood and education

Although born in China, Susan spent her entire childhood in Toronto, Canada, as her mother moved to live there soon after Susan was born. The two were living alone as Susan doesn’t have any siblings and it isn’t known why Susan’s father wasn’t part of their lives.

Susan’s love for journalism became visible as soon as she enrolled at high school, and her mother has been her main source of motivation as she encouraged her to pursue her dreams. After matriculating from high school, Susan enrolled at the University of Toronto, again mostly thanks to her mother who was paying for her studies, and graduated with a degree in economics. During her time there, Susan was learning languages and can today speak Cantonese, Mandarin, and English all fluently.

Career of a reporter

Susan launched her career as soon as she matriculated– although she would go on to obtain her degree in economics, she would remain focused on journalism, and become hired by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation where she served as their associate producer and reporter for TV and radio.

From there, she moved to Beijing to work for the China Central Television International in 2003,, and was part of their team until 2006, serving as an anchor of the “World News” show, their news editor, and  served as the main host of their “Biz China” program.


During this time, she had an opportunity to interview a couple of important and famous people, including Yao Ming, the popular basketball player, and Hugo Chavez, the president of Venezuela.

In 2006, Susan became part of Bloomberg Television, and served as the host of their “Asia Business Tonight” news show – in 2010, she became the host of another two shows, entitled “Morning Call” and “Bloomberg Edge”. She gained worldwide recognition after starting to host the “First Up with Susan Li” which covered all the important stories from around the world.

During this time, she also hosted a couple of other shows, including “Asia Stars” and “Asia Edge”. The job for  Bloomberg Television also gave Susan an opportunity to travel around the world, and report from some of the biggest events, including attending the 2008 Summer Olympics held in Beijing.

The year 2014 saw Susan move from Bloomberg Television to CNBC Asia, hired to serve as an anchor for their “Asia Squawk Box” TV show. The job required Susan to move to Hong Kong, where she stayed until the summer of 2015 – thanks to Susan, for the Asian Television Awards, the show won the best news program award in 2015.

Love life and husband

Susan is one of the most secretive women in the news industry, as she hasn’t shared any details regarding the men she might have dated throughout the years.

Whether it’s because Susan has been completely focused on her career and doesn’t have time for men, or because she prefers to keep her personal matters to herself, regardless, she hasn’t talked about her love life at all. Rumor has it that the popular journalist was dating a man while she was working in China, and that the two have exchanged their wedding vows there, however, this hasn’t been confirmed, and it appears as Susan is still single and unmarried.
