Former NBC news anchor Tom Brokaw, 72, was taken to the hospital Thursday morning while in Charlotte, North Carolina covering the Democratic National Convention.
A network spokesperson said Brokaw felt "light-headed" on the set of the program "Morning Joe."
"Out of an abundance of caution, he was taken to a hospital. He is being evaluated and is in good spirits," the spokesperson said in a statement.
Brokaw tweeted around 7 a.m. Arizona time that he's doing OK.
"All is well Early AM I mistakenly took a half dose of Ambien and made less sense than usual. Made a better comeback than Giants..." he tweeted.
A former anchor of NBC's "Nightly News," Brokaw now serves as a special correspondent for the network, where he reports and offers analysis for a variety of programs.
