"Nightline" has appointed Juju Chang as co-anchor, replacing Cynthia McFadden, who is exiting the ABC News series in order to join NBC News.

ABC News president Ben Sherwood announced Chang's elevation in a note to the news division on Thursday, saying that the "vital member of the 'Nightline' team for many years" will assume the co-anchor role effective immediately.

McFadden will serve as NBC News' senior legal and investigative correspondent, joining the division's investigative unit. She will contribute across all broadcasts and platforms of NBC News.

Sherwood praised Chang, who's been with "Nightline" full-time since 2011, for her dedication and tenacity.

"Juju is the perfect example of someone whose dedication and tenacity to innovative reporting has paved the way for her success," Sherwood wrote. "Juju has been with ABC News her entire career, starting as a desk assistant."

He went on to call McFadden an "amazing colleague" who's made "profound contributions" to ABC News.

"It is with great fondness that I wish Cynthia the very best in her new adventure," Sherwood noted.
