David has been hosting World News Tonight since 2014, and holds title as anchor and managing editor. 

The show is the highest-rated news show on broadcast or cable TV. It's been an exciting year for David, who most recently took part in the New York Marathon in a relay team with his fellow ABC colleagues, including Robin Roberts, Deborah Roberts and Ginger Zee.

They did it to raise money for Team of Kids, and had an enjoyable day taking part in the annual race - one of New York City's most celebratory days. 

What's more, the TV journalist recently received the news that he would be awarded the prestigious Walter Cronkite accolade in 2024 - following in the footsteps of the likes of Al Roker, Gayle King and Anderson Cooper.

Upon hearing the news of his award, David said in a statement: "Walter Cronkite famously guided this country through some of the most trying moments in modern U.S. history and he did so by trusting his own compass, his deep commitment to journalism and the truth, and his willingness, in the darkest of times, to share his own humanity. 

"To be honored in Cronkite's name is not only deeply humbling, it's a call for us all to live up to those standards especially when they’re needed most." David always wanted to be a journalist, and previously told People about his journey reaching his dream goal. "I didn’t care. I thought Peter Jennings was the James Bond of evening news," he told People.

David spent any extra time he had interning and contacting news outlets to seek out work with them. Speaking about his first position, he said: "I was 13 years old, I had written to the local news people in my town and they began writing back to me and that was my first visit to the TV station. 

"I began interning, carrying the tripods, and the equipment. They hired me out of college. That was where my first job was, Channel 5 in Syracuse."

He added: "It paid off. I was so happy, I would fetch the Cokes out of the Coke machine. I'd sit there and study the anchors at the anchor desk."
