TV newsers have been popular guests in late night of late. Jake Tapper was on Conan O’Brien, David Muir was on Jimmy Kimmel and next week Joe Scarborough is on Stephen Colbert‘s Late Show.
Muir jetted out to Los Angeles Wednesday morning for the Kimmel taping, and anchored World News Tonight before returning to New York that night.
“Every single day we go into the newsroom and talk about the stakes. They’re enormous,” Muir said of his ABC News role. “We know when we do the news every night it’s a divided America. Half the country feels as though they were finally heard. But then there are 65 million, 66 million Americans in this country who voted for Hillary Clinton who said, ‘how on Earth did this happen?’ We have to find a way to let everyone know when they’re watching that we hear them, that we’re asking their questions on all ends of the spectrum.”
