FNC’s Bill Hemmer: ‘There’s a sensory overload in breaking news stories’

Fox News Channel co-host Bill Hemmer is featured in the January issue of Men’s Journal where he likens his love of sailing to covering breaking news. Hemmer tells the magazine about jumping out of planes, bungee jumping and sailing.

Hemmer told the magazine:

“The thrill in my job is to experience history changing for millions of people, and then tell that story to millions of others. There’s a sensory overload in breaking news stories, too. When you’re on the scene for a developing story —one that unfolds over weeks, if not months— that’s why I’m in the business.”

Hemmer’s hobbies are getting more extreme as time goes on:

“…When I got a little older, I started jumping out of planes, and once in New Zealand I bungee jumped off the tallest commercial bridge in the world at the time. Every sensation, every sensory mode in your body is firing.”

More on Hemmer’s interview is after the jump…
