He is the anchor of 'ABC World News Tonight with David Muir' and has recently replaced Diane Sawyer as the anchor of the World News of ABC. He recently served as a fill-in anchor on the Live with Kelly & Ryan in the absence of regular host Ryan Seacrest.  

What is About his Religion? Is he Jewish or Roman Catholic? 

It can thus be said that his religious upbringing was Jewish and his ancestry is Jewish as well. Fluent in Spanish, French, and Arabic, Muir first worked as a journalist and anchor at WTVH Television whereby the coverage of the 1995 assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin earned him popularity and fame.

 His exquisite journalism skills, proper coverage, outstanding dedication amalgamated with his handsome personality make people want to look into his personal life, affairs, his religion, and other aspects of his life.

He was born into a Jewish family; later in life, he supposedly converted his religion to a Roman Catholic. He regularly attends church but discloses less about his religion so all that is known are suppositions. It is almost sure that he is Roman Catholic.
