Bill Hemmer inherits Shep Smith’s Time Slot at Fox News


by Mike Brest, Washington Examiner

Bill Hemmer will reportedly take over for Shepard Smith, who abruptly resigned from his show Shepard Smith Reporting in October. Hemmer will take over the 3 p.m. time slot, which was first reported by Mediaite.

Hemmer, one of the current hosts of America’s Newsroom on Fox News, said in a Fox News press release, “As a journalist, l am extremely grateful for this opportunity. 2020 will undoubtedly be a year of great significance. Leading our breaking news division with a signature hour has enormous value to me, personally, and to our audience. We’ve got a fantastic team here and I am excited to get to work.”

Bill Hemmer Reports will debut on Jan. 20. A number of journalists will join Sandra Smith, Hemmer’s current co-host, until a permanent co-anchor is announced.

Hemmer, who worked at CNN prior to moving to Fox, has hosted America’s Newsroom since its inception and has previously co-hosted the show with Megyn Kelly, Martha MacCallum, and Shannon Bream, all of whom ended up having their own shows later on.



  1. It’s about time Bill Hemmer was recognized by FOX. Megyn Kelly treated him like dirt and finally got her just reward. Martha MacCallum I never watch because she reminds me of a little nicer Megyn . I wish nothing but good things for Bill Hemmer.
