NBC's Tom Brokaw tweeted "all is well" after being taken to the hospital Thursday morning, saying he "mistakenly took a half dose of Ambien and made less sense than usual."
An NBC spokesperson had said the 72-year-old veteran newsman "felt light-headed" on the set of "Morning Joe" and was taken to the hospital for evaluation "out of an abundance of caution."
Brokaw tweeted out the Ambien explanation and made a quip about the New York Giants' loss to the Dallas Cowboys at 10 a.m. Thursday.
"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..." Brokaw posted.
Brokaw appeared on Fox News Wednesday night to discuss Democratic National Convention with host Sean Hannity.
