Veteran NBC newsman Tom Brokaw has been discharged from a North Carolina hospital where he was taken after feeling "lightheaded" during a segment of MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

"After medical evaluation and a round of tests, Tom was pronounced in good health and has been discharged," said a statement from NBC News President Steve Capus. "We're immensely grateful to the team at Carolinas Medical Center for their excellent care and professionalism."

Capus said Brokaw, who is covering the Democratic National Convention, was on the set of "Morning Joe" when he felt lightheaded" and was taken to the hospital "out of an abundance of caution."

Brokaw later tweeted, "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."
