Bill Hemmer To FNC: Evening Round-Up

By Brian 

> The AP lead:Bill Hemmer, dumped last month by CNN as co-host of its morning show, has joined archrival Fox News Channel as a daytime anchor.”

> TV Week calls Hemmer’s jump to Fox “a move that came as a surprise in TV news circles.”

> “Hemmer will report to work sometime in late August,” MediaWeek says.

> “This is a nice pick-up by FNC,” a TVSpyer says. “CNN just keeps losing talent, but then again I guess it would be hard to keep people around, being a second rate network and all.”

> I bet Hemmer’s fans (“I want Bill tied to a chair with whipped cream on him”) will migrate to FNC along with him. (Oh, and don’t forget “I bet he would taste better than a hot-fudge sundae.”)
