CNN's Hemmer joining FNC

Bill Hemmer, former co-host of CNN's American Morning, is joining Fox News Channel as a midday anchor and reporter.

Hemmer spent 10 years at CNN as an anchor and reporter. He started his TV career as a sports anchor for WCPO Cincinnati.

Fox is solidly out in front of CNN in ratings, but executives and anchors from the networks often swipe at the competition.

Hemmer lost his American Morning post last month when CNN opted to bring in Miles O’Brien.

The network offered Hemmer a spot as White House correspondent, which he rejected.

No word yet on how soon Hemmer will go on the air at FNC.

CNN is becoming incredibly mediocre. Lou Dobbs is the only one worth watching in the whole network.

I am wainting to see if Mr. Hemmer will be on Fox News, you let a good man go. Lou Dobbs is very good, so is Soledad O'Brien. Is MR. Hemmer with Fox Now? I've been waiting to see him again. Too bad you let him go.

I think CNN made a mistake by letting Bill Hemmer go on American Morning. Miles O'Brien, I believe, can be very rude when he interviews individuals. Bill, you are missed!

Mr. Hemmer, you are missed !!

CNN wasn't wiser enough to let you leave,
they don't know what they are missing indeed.

Can't believe Bill Hemmer is gone. I woke up one morning and he wasn't on with Soledad. How sad. The chemistry between them was so great. Sorry but Miles doesn't cut it. Guess I'll have to switch over to Fox.
