David Muir Was Praised For Keeping A Cool Head With Jimmy Kimmel Despite Re-Elections And The Pandemic Stressing Out US Citizens

Three years ago, the world was a completely different place. That held true for Jimmy Kimmel Live. The show didn’t have an audience, while guests were featured on the show remotely from home or in a studio. During the pandemic and other uncertainties like the re-election, David Muir managed to keep viewers grounded and secure, something that wasn’t easy to do.

Fans were binging to news programs at the time, and World News became the most watched news telecast in all the US. As expected, Muir kept a cool head about that statistic.

Muir revealed, “You mentioned being the most watched news program, I don’t think that’s because of me. I really think, one of the silver linings in such an unsettling time in the country is that our viewers in America are actually hungry for information and for the truth and for facts. We got a once in a century pandemic, the economy being tested, a re-election, I do feel like I have a responsibility every night.”


Muir went on to reveal that he was still going into the studio on a regular basis, despite the circumstances taking place in the world at the time. In addition, Kimmel did set up a few moments in which Muir could have bashed Donald Trump, but instead, he kept things classy with his responses.

The interview was a true masterclass.

David Muir Has One Main Focus When It Comes To Journalism

What advice does David Muir have for young journalists? The answer is simple, and a major key to his own success. In February of 2024, Muir spoke in a ceremony out in Phoenix, Arizona. He encouraged future journalists to find the “truth.” In journalism, there isn’t anything more credible than truth-telling, and actual facts. This creates a sense of security among the viewers.


Muir also took time to poke fun at himself during the ceremony, questioning his age.

“You know, when I learned that I would be receiving the Cronkite honor this year, the first thing I thought was ‘Wait a minute, how old am I?’ I did have a big birthday this last year, but the Cronkite award was entirely unexpected.”

Despite his older age, Muir revealed that he isn’t going anywhere, and remains more motivated than every before.

“I stand before you today and I still feel like the kid intern at 13 years old, I’m still just getting started.”

At the age of 50, David Muir is sitting on a $25 million net worth.
