From what I hear, Hemmer is a good guy...smooth, versatile and talented. His "sin" at CNN was running afoul of that network's new president Jonathan "Pajamas" Klein. Apparently, Klein didn't think Hemmer had enough gravitas, so he replaced him with the terminally dull Miles O'Brien.
Hemmer won't have the visibility he had at CNN (at least initially), but I can envision him filling in on the morning programs, during daytime coverage and occasionally for Shep Smith. BTW, I heard MSNBC was offering him a slightly better deal, but Hemmer apparently decided to go with a winner instead of the #4 cable network.

Hemmer is a good guy. What happened to Rita Cosby?
