“It’s been an honour and a pleasure”: Peter Hitchener signs off Nine News weeknights

Legendary News anchor Peter Hitchener wrapped 25 years of weeknight news on Nine News last night, congratulated on his 50 years with videos from Tracy Grimshaw, Patti Newton, Pete Smith, Denis Walter, Ross Stevenson and more.

Tony Jones and Livinia Nixon, who with ‘Hitch’ forged  a 20 year trio union, also payed tribute to the man, ahead of his shift to weeknights in 2024.

“Can I say it’s been an honour and a pleasure to present Nine News weeknights over the past 25 years? Thank you for watching,” said ‘Hitch.’

“And I hope you’ll join me for the weekend news up ahead, and that you’ll watch Alicia Loxley and Tom Steinfort weeknights next year.”

He finished with his signature sign-off.

“And Melbourne, that’s what’s news this Thursday. Enjoy your evening and good night.”
