After bringing her into the shot, Schwartz’ head falls to the desk, followed by her slinking behind the desk. The other hosts panic and immediately go to break. See a clip of that shocking moment below…

Carlson Schwartz has reportedly been hospitalized after collapsing on air. No update has been provided on her condition. News Director Mike Dello Stritto put out the following statement on the incident…

Our colleague Alissa Carlson became ill during our 7 AM newscast this morning. I want to thank her co-workers who took immediate action to comfort Alissa and call 911.

Alissa is being treated at the hospital right now. Hopefully we’ll know more shortly. In the meantime, Alissa will be in our thoughts and we’re praying for her to be feeling much better soon

TMZ is now reporting that Carlson Schwartz has prior on-air incidents, and a heart condition. That report reads…

It’s been a while now and there’s still no official update on how Carlson is doing. KCAL never came back to a live news report after this — the station opted to air pre-recorded/promotional programming for several hours. At the moment, they’re covering the NCAA.

Here’s the thing … Carlson had previously experienced a similar episode years ago — throwing up on set during a weather report when she was at a different station — and as a result … she was diagnosed with a leaky heart valve. That was back in 2014.

Unclear if her previous diagnosis played any role in Saturday’s episode. We’ve reached out to KCAL for a statement … so far, no word back. They haven’t addressed this at all thus far.
