Bill is an incredible newsman and his ability to cut to the heart of the story while humanizing major events has made him a standout talent in news. As we start gearing up for the 2020 election, we are thrilled to have him lead our news division through what will sure to be an eventful year, Fox News Media president and executive editor Jay Wallace said in a statement.
Hemmer will lead all breaking news coverage in addition to hosting the straight-news program from the networks FOX News Deck.

Hemmer is the best hard-news guy on Fox and the only reason I even watch in the morning. Glad he got the gig.
Is 3PM where Shep used to be?
You remember Shep Smith, don’t you?
Agree, Bill is OK. Way better than Shep.
Good move. Now Fire Fudge Napolitano and Chris Wallace and Juan Williams.
And replace Never-Trumper Neil Cavuto with Lou Dobbs.
Then theyll be moving in the Right direction.
FNC has no straight news guys, I'm not even sure, that other than John Solomon there is a straight news guy left, maybe Sara Carter.
Maybe they’re starting to feel the heat with OANN doing some good hard news reporting.
So he will be responsible for the Breaking Alerts! Bong that happens every ten minutes?
What a wonderfully easy job!
(BONG) Breaking Alert: President Trump Enters Restroom!
(BONG) Breaking Alert: President Trump Exits Helicopter!
I cant stand Fox and havent paid to watch it for many years.
Just do away with Cavuto altogether. Bring Kernan in from Squawk Box and let CNBC fold in upon itself.
Sorry I wasnt clear. Id like to see Cavuto not just replaced, but fired. The guy harbors such irrational hatred for Trump that he refuses to give him due credit for the roaring economy, record stock market, and 50-year low unemployment numbers.
Oh, I understood. I agree with your assessment of Cavuto, and also agree that he should be fired.
I remember back in the late 80s when CNBC was put together by NBC to compete with Financial News Network. Cavuto was one of their original personalities.
Kernen and Bill Griffeth came from FNN when CNBC bought them. Dobbs was originally on CNN’s Moneyline.
When Roger Stone’s verdict was announced, Hemmer said false statements equal guilty verdict.
I cannot believe Chris Wallace literally said today that Clinton was lying about sex. That was his crime.
Hemmer may be better than Shemp Smith, but he’s another liberal.
Very happy for the guy.
Bill Hemmer is, from time to time, full of it. He has a very high opinion of himself and acts as a horse’s ass regularly. You can always tell what his personal opinion is on any story and he is both a Liberal and a Trump Hater.
With all that said, I still guessed that he was the leading candidate and he is probably the right choice given the internal candidates available. I was concerned that one of the wonder women on the Fox News stable would get the nod. All of them are too ambitious and too Liberal to be suited to be the Shep replacement.
lou dibbs has been great - yes replace neil but neil is head of opertions for fox business
Wasn’t he one of the three stooges?
