He started in sports production at WLWT-TV in the mid-1980s where he realized his passion for live television. During his senior year at Miami University, Hemmer was offered a position at WLWT-TV as a sports producer. Soon after, he went to the CBS affiliate WCPO-TV as the weekend sports anchor.
At age 26, Hemmer took a nearly year-long hiatus from CBS to backpack around the world. During his time away, Hemmer traveled through China, Vietnam, Nepal, India, Egypt, Israel and Eastern Europe. While in Calcutta, India, Hemmer spent two weeks working in the children's clinics run by Mother Teresa. Throughout the journey, Hemmer wrote dispatches and submitted tapes and photos for both The Cincinnati Post, a local newspaper, and CBS's local affiliate that were assembled into several pieces collectively known as Bill's Excellent Adventure. The program won him two regional Emmys, Best Entertainment Program and Best Host. On his return from hiatus, he returned to WCPO as a news reporter before accepting a position at CNN's international headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia.
Hemmer spent ten years at CNN hosting a number of programs, including American Morning, CNN Tonight, CNN Early Edition, CNN Morning News, and CNN Live Today.
While at CNN, Hemmer covered a multitude of important events including the bombing of the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, the 2000 U.S. presidential election recount, the Timothy McVeigh execution, the 2002 mining accident that left nine workers trapped for 77 hours, the 2004 Democratic and Republican conventions, and the death of Pope John Paul II in 2005.
Hemmer joined Fox News in August 2005, and has reported on a large number of stories both at the news desk and in the field. These have included the Hurricane Katrina aftermath, the 2006 Israel-Lebanon crisis, the British sailors' hostage situation in Iran, the Iraq War, and an interview with 2008 presidential nominee of the Democratic Party, Barack Obama in July 2008.
More recently, Hemmer was the lead reporter and anchor from the tragic Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, as well as the site of the Boston Marathon bombing in April 2013.
Hemmer serves as the anchor for America's Newsroom. His current co-host is Shannon Bream.
