Despite rumors about how some of her Fox News colleagues might see her, Megyn Kelly could not heap enough praise on the man she worked the closest with at the network.
In an interview with the Washington Post, Kelly gushed over co-host Bill Hemmer, who shared duty with her on “America’s Newsroom.”
“He had a huge role in my development because we were not only partners; we were in some respects mentor and mentee, me being the mentee,” she said.
Kelly said she “was as green as they come,” yet the two had evolved into “more of a partnership” by the time she left the show, and from her perspective, the patience Hemmer displayed is legendary.
“I’d never been a TV anchor before; I’d never been employed as a TV anchor,” she said. “So, I mean, Hemmer is the ultimate gentleman. I have never seen him have anything but a kind word and a generous lens for people.
“If he gets frustrated or angry or upset, I have never seen it, and I have spent a lot of time with the guy.”
Kelly then shared a little anecdote about her engagement party to now-husband Doug Brunt, which Hemmer attended.
Doug’s parents were there; they were 70 and 80, thereabouts. . . . They needed to leave. [Confusion arises over how they would get a ride] Hemmer steps in and he’s like, “I will get them a taxi.” So he takes Dr. and Mrs. Brunt out to the sidewalk, he hails them a taxi, he gets them into the taxi, he gives the address to the taxi driver, then he tells the taxi driver what radio station to put on because he thinks Dr. and Mrs. Brunt would enjoy their 10-minute ride more with this music in the background. Doug’s dad has since passed away but his mother still lives for Bill Hemmer.
