Juju Chang is an Emmy Award-winning special correspondent and fill-in anchor for ABC News "Nightline." She also reports regularly for "Good Morning America" and "20/20."

Chang covered breaking news of the devastating effects of Superstorm Sandy from lower Manhattan to Breezy Point to the Rockaways. She reported on the mass shootings in Newtown, CT, interviewing a mother of one of the young victims. For a special "Nightline" series following the shooting at Sandy Hook, she profiled a young family of gun enthusiasts in Utah.

Chang has covered global events and issues like the earthquake in Haiti and maternal and infant mortality in Mozambique. Her "Nightline" segments on parenting and lifestyle issues include a report on the shocking epidemic of newborns de-toxing from painkillers. Her "On the Town" profiles with celebrities include Rod Stewart, Celine Dion and Carrie Underwood.

Chang's many hour-long reports include the story of murdered 8th grader Larry King which examined the issues of anti-gay bullying and juvenile justice. She also anchored hours for "Primetime: Nightline" on "Twin-tuition"; on an "Extra-ordinary family" the Bates of Tennessee who have 18 biological kids; and on Mommywood which featured interviews with celebrity moms Denise Richards and Tori Spelling.

Chang received one of her two Emmys for team coverage of the California wildfires. She won one of her two Gracies for a "20/20" story on gender equality in the sciences. Chang's hour-long "20/20" reports include an in-depth look at the impact on foreign adoptions gone wrong; the struggles of people with Albinism globally, including the plight of Tanzanian albinos; and an intimate portrait of one family dealing with gender transition.

Chang's award-winning investigative reports include the case of Hannah Overton, a young Texas mother sentenced to life in prison for the salt-poisoning death of her foster son, Andrew Burd.

A former news anchor for "Good Morning America," Chang had previously anchored the early morning newscasts "World News Now" and "World News This Morning" back in 2000.

Chang began her career at ABC News as a desk assistant and eventually became a producer at "World News Tonight." She rose to become a correspondent covering such stories as the U.S. Embassy bombings in Kenya, Hurricane Georges, and the anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear accident. Chang was based in Washington, DC from 1996-1997, where she covered the White House, Capitol Hill and the 1996 presidential election for NewsOne, ABC's affiliate service. Prior to her assignment in Washington, Chang was a reporter for KGO-TV in San Francisco, from 1995-96.

Born in Seoul, South Korea and raised in California, Chang graduated with honors from Stanford University with a BA in political science and communication. At Stanford, she was awarded the Edwin Cotrell Political Science Prize.

Chang is married to Neal Shapiro and has three sons. She is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and a founding board member of the Korean American Community Foundation.
