Tsui Hsiao-ping (Chinese :崔小萍; pinyin :Cuī Xiǎopíng; 1922/23 – 11 March 2017) was a Taiwanese radio personality and director.

Tsui was born in Jinan, China as the daughter of a postal worker. Her family was forced to move away from their home due to the Second Sino-Japanese War. She studied at Sichuan's Sixth Middle School in Deyang and later attended National Drama College. Tsui arrived in Taiwan as a member of the touring Shanghai Audience Company in late 1947. When the Kuomintang retreated to Taiwan in 1949, Tsui found it impossible to return to China. Subsequently, she began working for China Broadcasting Company in Taiwan. Her Broadcast Drama, on the air weekly on Sunday evenings, became immensely popular. In 1968, Tsui was arrested and charged with colluding with the Chinese Communist Party. Sentenced to fourteen years imprisonment, she was released in 1977. In 2000, she was honored with the Golden Bell Award for Special Lifetime Achievement. The next year, Tsui published a memoir.
