Tom Brokaw was briefly hospitalized after an incident on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that left him feeling “light headed”; but never fear, fans, Brokaw is just fine and says he took a little too much Ambien early this morning.

“After medical evaluation and a round of tests, Tom was pronounced in great health. … We’re immensely grateful to the team at Carolinas Medical Center for their excellent care and professionalism,” NBC News President Steve Capus said in a statement.

His appearance on “Morning Joe” had viewers concerned when he exhibited slurred speech and couldn’t keep his train of thought on track. But Brokaw insists the culprit was half an Ambien, which he “mistakenly” took earlier this morning.
