CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (CNN) — 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.

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.
