Early life[edit]

Originally from South Korea, Chang moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan when she was nine years old. Six years later, her parents returned to Korea, but Chang stayed in the United States with her older sisters. A graduate of the University of Michigan with a B.A. in economics, Chang also studied Environmental Studies at Oxford University in Oxford, England.


After originally pursuing a career in banking, she found her calling in 2000 after spending a semester at sea. 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.

While at WPIX, Chang covered both breaking and feature news. She also hosted the "Truly Julie" segment on the CW11 Morning News. She was featured in the February 2007 issue of high fashion magazine W, for which she was photographed by Philip-Lorca diCorcia. Chang has also appeared in fashion magazine Lucky and lifestyle magazine New York Moves. She had a minor part playing herself in the 2011 feature film The Smurfs.

Chang left the CW11 at the end of February, 2008.[2] She joined Fox 5 New York on June 16, 2008 and worked there until September 2012. Chang later moved to WNYW's sister station, KTTV, where since October 2012 she has been the Entertainment Anchor for Good Day LA & the Fox 11 Morning News.

In mid-November 2013, it was announced that she would be taking medical leave to treat a brain tumor.[3] On January 22, 2014, Chang returned from medical leave.[4]
