Details of David Muir’s Professional Career, Personal Life and Relationships

David Muir is an American journalist and ABC News likes describing him as their Emmy-award winning journalist.

While he’s the anchor and managing editor of “ABC World News Tonight with David Muir”, he’s as well a co-anchor of ABC’s “20/20”. Often described as one of the most prolific American Journalist, Muir for over 10 years, has reported from hot spots throughout the U.S. and has practically covered all major news around the world.

From Tehran, Tahrir Square, Mogadishu, Gaza, and Fukushima. To Somalia, Kenya, Egypt, Japan, China, the Middle East, South America, Eastern Europe, South Africa, and Haiti, David Muir has reported news event.

Muir’s resume would be scanty of his deeds in journalism if it didn’t highlight that he, apart from conducting numerous interviews with presidential candidates during the U.S 2016 election campaign, moderated Democratic and Republican Presidential primary debates. It is believed that Muir inspired former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton to apologize to Americans for using a private e-mail server.

Disregarding the above, ABC has given credit to David Muir for several exclusive interviews he landed which generated global headlines. To cite an instance, Muir was the first to interview President Donald Trump after he got inaugurated. More to that, he secured an exclusive interview with Apple CEO, Tim Cook in the midst of the conflict between Apple and the FBI over unlocking the San Bernardino killer’s iPhone.

If David Muir was praised for getting an exclusive interview with former U.S. President, Barack Obama during his historic trip to Cuba, he was esteemed when he succeeded in obtaining an exclusive sit-down with Pope Francis in the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church – Vatican.

David Muir joined ABC News in August 2003. He was employed as an anchor for ABC’s overnight news program “World News Now”. He was so good he soon became a lead correspondent.

True, Muir is an Emmy-award winning journalist. Discounting that, he’s bagged the Edward R. Murrow awards for his reports. A few months ago, he won the prestigious 60th CINE Golden Eagle Award for his “20/20” coverage of heroin epidemic. Also, he’s won the National Headliner Award and Associated Press honors for his works.
