Juju Chang to replace Chris Cuomo on 'GMA'; Cuomo offered '20/20'
The expected announcement by ABC this week that “This Week” anchor George Stephanopoulos will succeed Diane Sawyer as the new co-anchor of “Good Morning America” is triggering some other changes on the program. According to a source familiar with the situation, correspondent Juju Chang has been offered the position of news anchor on the morning show. She would replace Chris Cuomo, who was in the running to replace Sawyer but is not expected to remain on the show when Stephanopoulos arrives. ABC executives hope to keep Cuomo at the network, however, and are in “very active discussions” with him about co-anchoring the newsmagazine “20/20” and getting an expanded reporting role across the news division, the source said.
