“America’s Newsroom” cohost Bill Hemmer has signed a multi-year contract to stay on with Fox News Channel, Variety has learned.

In addition to his duties surrounding the weekday morning news talk show he hosts with Martha MacCallum, Hemmer has anchored the network’s 1 p.m. ET timeslot since September. He will continue in this position until a new show debuts at that hour.

“Bill Hemmer is a fantastic all-around newsman and a tremendous talent,” said Roger Ailes, chairman and CEO of Fox News. “One of his great gifts is his ability to work so well with everyone — there isn’t an hour in our news lineup that Bill couldn’t anchor. He’s the consummate team player.”

Hemmer, who joined the politically conservative-leaning 24-hour news network in 2005 after 10 years at CNN, said “There is no better boss in America than Roger Ailes. I’m proud to work for him and my wonderful, hardworking colleagues at FNC.”

    BILL HEMMER – Just where the heel do you get your information from – The Cornsuckers of Nebraska may support Lying Cruz the “ASS” HOLE in astroturf – but the PEOPLE of Nebraska support “TRUMP A Leader” not lier!

    Bill Hemmer can partner up with anyone. He is just an all around guy. So where is Bill going to newscast?

    Why isn’t Venezuela mentioned in Fox News?? Don’t you think that people should know what is going on? – I love Fox News and to me there is no other channel like Fox but, I am disappointed when I have to change to other local channels that do tell all about it. Thank you

    Love Bill Hemmer and glad he’s staying with FOX. By the way just a question for the writer of this article. Being that you felt it necessary to explain that Fox is a conservative leaning channel, I’m assuming that you are also describing MSNBC, CNN, etc. as Leftist, liberal leaning, news channels. Just asking…..Because you know it’s only right to be fair and Balanced if you wish to throw stones….figuratively speaking…

  6. YAY!!!!!! Love me some Bill Hemmer!!!!! He & Martha McCallum are a great team & we love watching them.
