NEW YORK - NBC News special correspondent Tom Brokaw has been discharged from a Charlotte, N.C., hospital and pronounced "in great health" after feeling light-headed during a TV appearance Thursday morning.
"After medical evaluation and a round of tests, Tom was pronounced in great health and has been discharged," NBC News President Steve Capus said in a statement released Thursday afternoon.
Capus expressed gratitude to the Carolinas Medical Center for Brokaw's excellent care.
Hours earlier, the network had reported that Brokaw felt "light-headed" on the set of the news-talk program "Morning Joe," which originated this week from Charlotte, where the Democratic National Convention is taking place.
"Out of an abundance of caution," the network said, Brokaw was taken to the hospital for examination.
