In 2005, Hemmer began working for Fox News, where he has since handled various coverage, such as that of the Hurricane Katrina aftermath in 2005; the Israel-Lebanon crisis in 2006; the Iraq War; an interview with Barack Obama; and the visit of Pope Benedict XVI to the USA in 2008; the 2009 shootings at Fort Hood, Texas; the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti; both the Democratic and the Republican National Conventions; the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Connecticut in 2012; and the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013.
