Big changes are coming to my morning wake up call: “Good Morning America” is completely changing it’s line up of television anchors. TV news veteran Diane Sawyer is moving to the evening news to be only the second-ever solo female anchor of the evening news. This is exciting for Diane and for women. It means women will outnumber men on the big three networks for evening news coverage. Among the other changes are that political reporter, George Stephanopoulus, has been named Sawyer’s replacement to co-anchor GMA news with the amazing Robin Roberts.
I’ve loved watching two women co-anchor a major news program. Diane and Robin broke the mold on morning news shows when Charlie Gibson left GMA. It was some serious girl power. That’s changing now.Â (Don’t get me started on the exit of Chris Cuomo.) But there is some good news among all this change.
Enter Juju Chang: working mom.
It’s about time. Time for a mother to be a part of the “Good Morning America” main line up. Juju Chang, mother to three, becomes the news anchor starting Monday — she’ll be balancing motherhood in a whole new way and we’ll be watching as she proves that moms can do anything we set our minds to.
A mother hasn’t been a part of the main four anchors in over a decade (since the Joan Lunden days). It’s not that ABC has neglected any stories about mothers and families, but let’s not forget how important it is to have mothers represented in this way. Thanks ABC for making this important decision. I’m excited to have JuJu on the team and welcome her insight into the news and any special reporting she will cover.
