David Muir is often seen in a work suit while informing viewers of the latest news headlines around the United States. 

But away from work on World News Tonight, the TV anchor sports a very different look - especially when the sun is out!

The 20/20 co-anchor shared a new selfie from the Labor Day weekend on Instagram this week, showing him looking happy and relaxed while sitting out in the sun.

David, 49, sported an oversized sun hat and RayBans as he dozed off in the heat. "Preferred gear now thru labor day," he wrote in the caption. Fans were quick to comment on his appearance, with one writing: "The hat really makes it!" while another wrote: "Will you be wearing this now for the evening news?" Al Roker also responded, joking: "I would give good money to a charity to see you anchor in that!!!" 

David has enjoyed an incredible career to date, with his daily news show regularly beating competitors with the highest viewing figures. The star always wanted to be a journalist, and praises his parents for their support in his early career.

"One of the images I won’t forget is my mother and my father driving me there on summer vacation or school breaks," he said. "When most kids go off to do other things, I remember just begging them to take me to that TV station. I'm sure they dreaded it. Between the two of them, they had to get me there. To this day, I'm grateful they would drive me to 980 James St."
