David Muir was delighted as he received a special recognition for his news show
David has been a familiar face on TV for many years, and began hosting World News Tonight with David Muir back in 2014, earning himself a legion of loyal fans.
The journalist's career highlights have been aplenty too. He knew he wanted to work in the news industry from an early age, which was only encouraged by his close-knit family.

David Muir has had an incredible career to date
Chatting to Syracuse.com about his upbringing, the journalist said that he remembered his mother and father driving him to the television studios where he was interning.
"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."
When he isn't working, David enjoys nothing more than spending time relaxing at home in New York City with his beloved pet dog Axel.
