Julie Chang joined FOX 11 KTTV in November 2012. Previously, Chang was an entertainment reporter for FOX 5 WNYW in New York. Before that, Chang was a reporter for WPIX-TV's weekday morning news in New York.
She has been recognized for her work with a New York State Associated Press Award and a 2007 Emmy nomination. A graduate from the University of Michigan with a B. A. in economics, Chang also attended Oxford University, in Oxford, England.
Originally from South Korea, Chang moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan, when she was 9-years-old. At the age of fifteen, her family returned to Korea, but Chang stayed in the United States.
After originally pursuing a career in banking, she found her calling in 2000 after spending a semester at sea. Aboard a retired cruise ship, she sailed around the world, spending time in such varied locations as Cuba, Brazil, South Africa, Kenya, India, Malaysia, Vietnam, Hong Kong, China and Japan. The voyage gave birth to her passion: story telling which can expose, educate and enlighten her viewing audience. Julie's current count--75 countries! But, Julie's passion is also local! She is a mentor through the hyper-local LA not-for-profit Fulfillment Fund, an ambassador for the Los Angeles Zoo (she launched the Ambassador Program!), a mom to a curious toddler, and, as of 2014, a brain tumor survivor.
