Peter Hitchener won’t be reading the news on Nine tonight as he rests up from a medical scare.

The popular 9News anchor had plenty of Melburnians worried on Monday night when he was forced to stop reading the news mid-bulletin due to a migraine.

“He just had a bit of difficulty reading the autocue, which I’m sure many of you would have seen,” 9News director Hugh Nailon explained on 3AW Mornings.

Nailon said Hitch was feeling “a million bucks” today, but they’d agreed for him to have Tuesday night off.

“I’m very pleased to report that he is feeling good and in good spirits, so expect to see him back soon,” he said.
