Add DATEPART(hh, datetimein) to the grouping.

i have added it but i want to get a format like AM PM
can't test, but try this :

SELECT  count(0) as nMessages,  convert(nvarchar, datetimein, 103) as currDate, RIGHT(CONVERT(VARCHAR,datetimein, 100),7) as currHour 
FROM [radiomix].[dbo].[chat] 
GROUP BY convert(nvarchar, datetimein, 103), RIGHT(CONVERT(VARCHAR,datetimein, 100),7)

If you are wanting to see the hours across the report, try this:
SELECT	reqport,
		SUM(CASE WHEN DATEPART(hh, datetimein) = 0 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS 'Midnight', 
		SUM(CASE WHEN DATEPART(hh, datetimein) = 1 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS '1:00 AM',
		SUM(CASE WHEN DATEPART(hh, datetimein) = 2 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS '2:00 AM',
-- additional times here		
		SUM(CASE WHEN DATEPART(hh, datetimein) = 23 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS '11:00 PM'
FROM	radiomix.dbo.chat
GROUP BY reqport,
		YEAR(datetimein),		
		MONTH(datetimein),		
		DAY(datetimein)

It isn't the cleanest, and you may be able to play around and use the PIVOT function, but seeing as how your time (I'm sure) contains minutes and seconds, it would still take some work.

The above won't give you the date. Use
SELECT	reqport,
	CAST(datetimein AS DATE) AS Date,
	SUM(CASE WHEN DATEPART(hh, datetimein) = 0 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS 'Midnight', 
	SUM(CASE WHEN DATEPART(hh, datetimein) = 1 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS '1:00 AM',
	SUM(CASE WHEN DATEPART(hh, datetimein) = 2 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS '2:00 AM',
-- additional times here		
	SUM(CASE WHEN DATEPART(hh, datetimein) = 23 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS '11:00 PM'
FROM	dbo.chat
GROUP BY reqport,
	CAST(datetimein AS DATE)

The code I provided would give you smething in the format of
reqport	Date	Midnight	1:00 AM	2:00 AM	11:00 PM
abcd	2012-12-01	4	1	0	0
xyz	2012-12-01	1	0	0	0
abcd	2012-12-02	0	0	1	0
xyz	2012-12-03	0	0	0	0

(with better formatting). I've tested it. Obviously, if you code the remaining times in the CASE statement, it will give you all 24 hours across the report.

If you want each in a separate row, try:
SELECT reqport,  
CAST(datetimein AS DATE) AS Date,
 CASE WHEN DATEPART(hh, datetimein) = 0 THEN 'Midnight' 
		WHEN DATEPART(hh, datetimein) = 12 THEN 'Noon' 
		WHEN DATEPART(hh, datetimein) BETWEEN 1 AND 11 THEN DATENAME(HH, datetimein) + ':00 AM' 
		WHEN DATEPART(hh, datetimein) BETWEEN 13 AND 23 THEN DATENAME(HH, datetimein) + ':00 PM' 
END AS HOUR, 
	COUNT(*)
FROM chat
GROUP BY reqport,  
CAST(datetimein AS DATE),
CASE WHEN DATEPART(hh, datetimein) = 0 THEN 'Midnight' 
		WHEN DATEPART(hh, datetimein) = 12 THEN 'Noon' 
		WHEN DATEPART(hh, datetimein) BETWEEN 1 AND 11 THEN DATENAME(HH, datetimein) + ':00 AM' 
		WHEN DATEPART(hh, datetimein) BETWEEN 13 AND 23 THEN DATENAME(HH, datetimein) + ':00 PM' 
END

If you are not running SQL Server 2008, which it appears you are, since you've put this question in the SQL Server 2008 zone, try changing CAST(datetimein AS DATE) to CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), datetimein, 112)
