“Juju is the perfect example of someone whose dedication and tenacity to innovative reporting have paved the way for her success,” ABC/Disney co-president Ben Sherwood writes in a note to staff.
Chang, who has been with ABC News her entire career, starting as a desk assistant, is married to former NBC News boss Neal Shapiro, now president of WNET.
McFadden was one of the original anchors when “Nightline” went to a 3-anchor format in 2005, along with Martin Bashir and Terry Moran. Bashir left for MSNBC in 2010, replaced by Bill Weir. Last year, Dan Abrams replaced Moran who is now a foreign correspondent for ABC News. And when Weir left for CNN in October, Dan Harris took his spot.
In his note, Sherwood thanked McFadden for her 20 years of service. “Cynthia has been an amazing colleague, a loyal mentor to so many of our up and coming producers and I am personally grateful for her profound contributions to ABC News. It is with great fondness that I wish Cynthia the very best in her new adventure.”
