Juju Chang, the well-liked newsreader on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” was born in South Korea but is now “twice as Jewish” as her Jewish-born husband, former NBC News President Neal Shapiro. Shapiro made the joking comment in Sunday’s New York Times, in a “Sunday Routine” profile summarizing the pair’s Sunday activities with their three sons. The couple devotes much of the day to baseball, Shapiro reported, waking up early to watch their eldest son’s double-headers. Asked by the Times about his wife’s religious background, he noted that she had converted to Judaism when the pair got married.
