Upon discovering the large-scale ad, Muir took to Instagram, sharing a snapshot of the poster. Instead of backlash, his post was met with positivity, earning affirmative responses from his followers.
Since 2014, Muir has been the anchor of the nightly news program, which has become the top-rated news show across all networks, whether broadcast or cable. The show's success is a testament to his hard work and dedication.
Nonetheless, Muir's media presence isn't limited solely to the newsroom. He has a keen interest in charity work, shown through his participation in the New York Marathon. Teaming up with fellow ABC stalwarts Robin Roberts, Deborah Roberts, and Ginger Zee, Muir took part in a relay race, raising funds for Team for Kids.
It's this steadfast dedication to journalism that has earned Muir widespread recognition, a fact recently solidified with a significant honor. In 2024, he's set to receive the esteemed Walter Cronkite award, a distinction shared by Al Roker, Gayle King, and Anderson Cooper.
Receiving this accolade isn't merely a celebration for Muir. He sees it as a challenge, a responsibility to uphold the journalistic integrity that Walter Cronkite symbolizes.
Muir's journey into journalism started at a young age. His first taste of the profession was an internship at a local TV station which paved the way for his initial role at Channel 5 in Syracuse. The rest, as they say, is history.
