Fox News Channel anchor Bill Hemmer ("America's Newsroom"), who headlined much of the network's coverage of the Newtown, Conn., shootings, is looking ahead to his next big assignment -- co-anchoring New Year's Eve coverage from New York City's Times Square.
"Listen -- we're looking forward to another good year," Hemmer tells Zap2it, a sinus infection making his voice sound ragged. "We've had a lot of big stories and a lot of challenges in 2012, as you well know. As a country, here's to hoping for a much better 2013."
What with the Newtown tragedy, the looming fiscal cliff, political bickering, violence breaking out around the country and the world, and the general anemic state of the economy, it's not the most trouble-free of holiday seasons.
But, says Hemmer, that won't dampen the enthusiasm of those who brave hours in the cold to watch the sparkling ball drop in Manhattan.
