Bill Hemmer Re-Ups with Fox News

“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.”
