The program did not return to live segments after the break, but a pre-recorded show aired, according to TMZ.
Hours later, CBS Los Angeles Vice President and News Director Mike Dello Stritto gave TMZ an update on his health, saying, “Our colleague Alisa Carlson became ill during our 7 o’clock newscast this morning. I want to thank her co-workers who took immediate action to comfort Alisa and call 911. Alisa is currently undergoing treatment in the hospital. Hopefully, we’ll know more soon. In the meantime, Alyssa will be in our thoughts and we are praying she feels better soon.
Ms Schwartz previously experienced a similar episode in 2014 when she vomited on set during a weather report and was diagnosed with a leaky heart valve as a result, according to the outlet.
Meanwhile, several Twitter users shared their concerns about the news presenter’s health and expressed hope that she is doing well now. “So horrible, so scary,” said one user, while another user commented, “I hope she is okay and getting the best medical care.”
The newsreader later took to Instagram stories and assured her viewers that she’s going to be fine. ”Thank you for all the texts, calls and well wishes,” she said. However, she did not give any details about what led to the medical event.
