Amy was delighted to share the news on Instagram

"I watch ABC news because of David and love GMA to start off my morning," wrote one, while another added: "He's the reason I watch World News Tonight."

David's latest career achievement will be added to a celebrated resume as an anchor on American news. In addition to America Strong, he hosts the nightly news on ABC and presents 20/20 too. His work has earned him a string of Emmy awards and he only seems to be gaining in popularity.

He's notoriously private when it comes to his personal life and little is known about his existence away from the cameras.

Over the years there has been speculation as to who his partner is, but David is believed to be single. Not to say he hasn't got many admirers. 

In 2014, he appeared on People magazine's list of Sexiest Men Alive, alongside the likes of Chris Hemsworth and Idris Elba. 

Although he is private, David does have an Instagram account with 485,000 followers. He posts images from his work assignments but also gives a glimpse into his personal life with photos of his beloved dog, Axel, who he appears smitten with.
