Bill Hemmer, removed last month by CNN as co-host of its morning show, has joined the “enemy” Fox News Channel as a daytime anchor.
CNN had paired him with Paula Zahn as “American Morning” co-host in 2002, before she was removed for Soledad O’Brien.
CNN said it wanted to “improve the chemistry” in the morning when it replaced Hemmer with Miles O’Brien. The New York-based Hemmer was offered a White House correspondent’s job at CNN but declined.
Hemmer will be a correspondent along with anchoring daytime news coverage, Fox said Tuesday.
