Juju Chang
Emmy Award-winning co-anchor of ABC News Nightline

With the rise of hate crimes against the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community, Juju 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. Known for her in-depth personal narratives and long-form storytelling, Chang has won acclaim for stories with underlying themes of civil and women’s rights and social justice. Juju made the personal decision to convert to Judaism years after marrying Neal Shapiro, President and CEO of WNET.
