Not only is he one of the best journalists out there with extremely commendable reporting skills, but he also recently won the broadcaster of the year award. He is none other than David Muir.
But looking at him can get a bit unfair because, with talent, he’s got the looks to die for.
However, attractiveness comes with a price, and in David Muir’s case, gay talks.

Is David Muir Gay? Boyfriend, Gay Bar
Among all the gay rumors floating around, this beautiful man who currently anchors for World News Tonight keeps doing his job.
So far, David has not made any comments regarding his sexuality.
However, nobody can deny the fact that he was in a gay bar, according to multiple sources, and that too with a fellow ABC journalist Gio Benitez who is a proud and openly gay man.
But don’t jump to conclusions yet.
While people strongly David Muir to be gay and dating Gio Benitez, they can’t be any more wrong.
Gio Benitez is not his boyfriend because Gio is already married to boyfriend cum longtime partner Tommy DiDario back in 2016.
Given all the facts, fans and viewers alike would think David Muir is gay by sexuality.
He has no relationship history, no known girlfriend so far, never known to be married, and visited a gay bar.
However, there’s more to it.
Muir Is Not Gay! He [Had] A Girlfriend
The short answer. David Muir is not gay.
Here’s the long answer that explains the how part.
In 2015, Muir’s girlfriend came forward in the act of clearing his public name as a “Monster.”
Back in 2015, David was dating a beautiful woman named Kate Dries, currently Editorial Director of Features at VICE.
Back in 2015, Kate worked as a staff writer for Jezebel. During that time, she came around to a public forum titled David as a “Monster.”
So, Kate took it upon herself to clear the confusion leading to such a conclusion.

Kate even took this picture of David while out in Rome.
Kate stated in her article how even after doing a once-in-a-lifetime interview, Muir remained frustrated over the fact that his co-worker, Lester Holt’s show, was doing better than he did.
For that, Muir began lashing out at people at work, channeling his displeasure into anger.
Kate assured everyone that Muir is a sweetie. It was just working extra hard and not getting a similar return that was getting on Muir’s nerves during that time.
Now, the fact that Muir had such a nice girlfriend back in the day is enough to say that he is not a gay man.
However, it looks like Muir and Dries are not together as of today.
