David Muir on Top


Congats to David Muir, who has just been named Diane Sawyer's successor to host "ABC World News." THIS PHOTO of him in a spin class brings me more hits than any other, and I think it's because details about the handsome journalist's personal life have remained elusive. My understanding is that he is openly gay in his day-to-day life -- which makes his anointment all the more groundbreaking. Email me, David -- don't pull another Anderson Cooper!

I have read he may have a wife and is very guarded on his personal life. No one seems to know.
Any way one puts it, David is a handsome and sincere Journalist and is deserving of the spotlight.

You can email me too David!

Guess I'll be switching to ABC for my evening news!

I like his approach a lot more than most anchors. I think it sucks that ABC will give the 'big' stories to Stephanopolous.

David Muir is 100% gay. It will be interesting to follow how he deals with this going forward. The big bosses at ABC News surely have a long term strategy and will be very supportive as they were for Sam Champion and Robin Roberts coming out. David will deal with it following Anderson Cooper's successful (albeit late) coming out. Ther are many people speculating that David is dating his ABC News colleague Gio Benitez.

Nah. I'm not a fan of this guy's delivery. To me he's a head of hair in a suit.

I blame ABC for the direction they're taking with the network news. It's emotionally manipulative stories meant to bring a tear to the eye or to highlight was is really fake patriotism or for you to just say, "Aw!"

And David Muir is the king of those kinds of stories. As an avid news consumer on broadcast TV and radio, cable TV and internet, I tuned out ABC long ago and this announcement validates that decision.

His news voice is very different than when he does interviews. It appears his normal voice (gay voice) comes out during a lot of his interviews. Sometimes, it'll even pop out on the news desk when lets his guard down. Then, he'll check himself and reign it back in asap. The commencement speech he delivered at the Northeastern this May was on "embracing your fear", which may be from a personal battle: fear about whether to come out or not. His communications PR person is gay (VAn Scott) but married to another gay man. Muir and Scott travel together all the time (NU commencement speech, Chamber of Commerce in PA, etc. etc.). While it those travels may be work related, it was a little surprising that they also stuck together very closely during WHCD 2015.

"When will I break through the fear?" - David Muir says in his commencement speech to NU. So, he may be struggling with fear of coming out. He may just need some time. Or he may be conflicted in his sexuality, and needs time.

People must spot him with his partner (male or female) at restaurants, shops, or other places outside of work. Why aren' there any photos of them? But I do have to say that the little there is on the internet of him and someone on non-work settings has been male.

David Muir is living with his boyfriend. You can see them wearing each other's clothes. One day David will wear the suit, jacket, shirt, tie, etc, then another day, you can see his "housemate" wear the same suit, jacket, etc. They are similar height and build so they can even wear each other's pants. They hang out together with their gay friends.

Gay men HANGING OUT WITH THEIR GAY FRIENDS?? Say it isn’t so. What is this world coming to?

Demure One said...

Thomas, I say that David Muir and lover hang out with all their gay friends to underscore that he's OUT in his personal life.

They travel together all over too. They frequent Florida and the Cacos Islands. David also has been taking him around Europe this past summer to see the art and architectures there because his lover had recently finished an art business program. His lover is in his late 30's. He's just hasn't made a public annoucement maybe to protect his lover for now.
