Then CNN president Jonathan Klein informed Hemmer that they planned to move him from his morning anchor job to Washington where he'd be a White House correspondent.Hemmer regarded the offer as a demotion—he also said he had no interest in leaving New York behind—and quickly made his escape plans.
Mendte later hacked into Lane’s email account in an effort to discredit his colleague by leaking information to the press. Kelly, for the record, notes that she and Hemmer “never laid an inappropriate hand on each other” during their time together as co-hosts of .
Lane, meanwhile, sent photos of herself – clad in a bikini – to married NFL Network anchorman Rich Eisen. Furthermore, she sees Lane’s series of embarrassments as actions she’s going to have to take responsibility for instead of trying to pass the blame on to her former network and co-worker.
Our fantasies came crashing down this morning, however, when a reader sent us this very official missive: Dear Queerty: So, Bill Hemmer of Fox News Channel made it official this morning during his news program that he has a girlfriend!! While this Boston-based reader may be sleeping well, weâre vowing never, ever to sleep again. In other words, his IQ is definitely above average. When I lived in Atlanta years ago, and Hemmer was at CNN in Atlanta at the time, it was widely known that Hemmer was gay, and was seen in gay bars.
In fact he took her to the top of the Empire State building yesterday, and proudly pulled out his cell phone while live on the air, found her picture on his cell phone and forced it in front of the camera for the world to see the lovely Mrs. His co-host of Americaâs Newsroom, Megyn Kelly seemed shocked and amazed by stating âthat doesnât sound like youâ! Murdock or Roger Ailes have finally figures out (and straighten out) Hemmers sexuality for him. In fact, weâll never eat again, breath again or blink again. Sadly, he seemed to slide himself back into the closet as the years passed & he moved to New York.
– to discuss the lawsuit former KYW anchor Alycia Lane recently filed against CBS and her former co-anchor for having “discredited” her.
“Because,” as Kelly humorously pointed out, “when you think about inappropriate behavior at the anchor desk, you think Bill Hemmer.” Lane, you’ll recall, allegedly entered into a “flirtatious, unprofessional and improper relationship” with her former co-anchor, Larry Mendte, which, according to Mendte, went sour after his wife discovered the affair…As is the tendency with this sort of thing, we assume.Lane, for her part, denies that the two engaged in a romantic or sexual relationship, but claims Mendte routinely came on to her while the two worked together. We never did quite get the answer to that second question, but Hemmer did opine that, if two people are engaged in a relationship (which, again, Lane denies), what they do in various states of undress in someone’s car is their own business, regardless of whether or not they work together, or even whether or not they happen to be married to other people.I think he's a smart fellow but working at Fox has to slice dozens of points off your IQ.editor Joanna Coles at Advertising Week XII in New York, Fox News Channel’s budding superstar anchor Megyn Kelly opined about the political leanings of her colleagues, naming two of them as liberals: Kelly did so after after being asked only about Fox’s conservative leanings: It’s not that Fox has some conservative bent like our critics would charge. There is no question that Sean Hannity is a conservative.Hemmer landed at Fox in August of 2005, serving as weekday co-anchor of , Hemmer recently signed a "multi-year, multimillion-dollar contract" with the cable network.
