Growing up watching ABC news segments and seeing himself as an anchor, David Jason Muir made his childhood dream a reality. However, apart from a successful professional career, not much is known about his personal life.

Is The Sexiest Man Alive, Gay?

Muir has kept his personal life so private that him having a relationship seems fanciful. However, the ABC World news anchor had been awarded the title of People’s list of “Sexiest Man Alive” back in 2014. And honestly, we agree. 

The 47 years old charming man has been rumored to be gay multiple times as it is not a piece of new news in Hollywood to question one’s sexuality, especially those that are as charming as Mr. Muir. 

But as far as his dating rumors and linkup goes, it has never been with a man. So it will be safe to say that the anchor is straight. The rumor originated after he was papped multiple times with his colleague Gio Benitez. Still, the fan’s ship of these two sailed when Benitez got engaged to his now-husband Tommy DiDario

However, wanting to keep his privacy might not have been fully respected as Kate Dries came forward with an article named "My Boyfriend David Muir Is a 'Monster' to let the world know of her association with the 47-year-old.

Dries posted an article where she said-

"This is as hard for me to write as it is for you to read but I've just learned ...... that my boyfriend, ABC News Anchor David Muir, is a, quote unquote, monster"

While David has never accepted her claims with respect to the journalist, we too cannot accept these claims. But, if this is true, then the anchor is far from being labeled as gay. 

Being in the public eye every day might have led this young journalist to keep his personal life locked within the walls of his room. Muir has never been married nor engaged, as far as we know. And talking about his dating life now, it is still alien to us. 

Having 482 thousand followers and admirers on Instagram, he is quite a celebrity himself, so it will only be a matter of time when we get to see who the lucky person is, if there will be any.

How It All Came To Be

Muir has always been passionate about journalism and anchoring. As per his interview with People magazine, He claimed that he cared more to watch news segments while growing up than play with his friends. He said-

“When I was a 12-year-old boy, I’d play with my friends after school, but I’d always excuse myself to go in and watch the news at 6 p.m. I didn’t care. I thought Peter Jennings was the James Bond of evening news,”

His journey began in 1994 when he got to work as an anchor and a reporter at WVTH-TV in New York.

All those years of learning and studying news anchors’ ways by being in front of the TV led the 47-year-old to earn top honors from the “Radio-Television News Directors Association.”

He also got honored as the Best Enterprise Reporting and Best Television Interview. After achieving so much in just 6 years of his start, he decided to move on from WTVH to WCVB television.

After working for 3 years, Muir finally landed on a place where his childhood self always saw himself as an anchor on the ABC news. He now has worked for almost two decades and has won many honorable awards.

This amazing journalist has now taken control as the lead anchor of breaking news and special event coverage for ABC News, a title held by the most reputed and talented journalist.
