Tom Brokaw was rushed to a hospital earlier this morning (September 6), after complaining of light-headedness.

The former anchor of "NBC Nightly News" has just finished a taping for the "Morning Joe", when he experienced the symptoms; Brokaw was rushed to a hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The 72 year-old has been making numerous appearances on talk shows, despite his retirement nearly 8 years ago, such as the previously mentioned "Morning Joe", Sean Hannity and "The Daily Show".

Mr. Brokaw has been in Charlotte to cover the Democratic National Convention, where President Barack Obama is expected to formally accept his party's nomination for President tonight.
