One of the most prominent Asian Americans in broadcast news, JuJu Chang is the Emmy Award-winning co-anchor of ABC News Nightline and a regular contributor to Good Morning America and 20/20.

With the rise of hate crimes against the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community, Chang leveraged her platform to become a much-admired champion of social change. She made U.S. broadcast history co-anchoring the 2021 ABC News Live special, Stop the Hate: The Rise in Violence Against Asian Americans alongside fellow Korean-American co-anchor Eva Pilgrim and a cast of AAPI journalists, thought leaders, lawmakers and celebrities.

Chang also reported from the scene of the mass shootings at three Asian-themed spas in Atlanta, co-anchoring the ABC News 20/20 breaking news special, Murder in Atlanta.

Chang’s highly visible reporting on Asian hate is the culmination of decades covering everything from natural disasters to terrorism, mass shootings, immigration, violence against the LGBTIAQ+ community and, most recently, the inequities of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Born in Seoul, South Korea, and raised in Northern California, Chang joined ABC as an entry-level desk assistant in 1987 after graduating with honors from Stanford University.
