UPDATE: Meteorologist Alissa Carlson Schwartz posted on her Facebook page this afternoon. “Thanks for all the texts, calls, and well wishes. I am going to be ok!” She gave no further details.
EARLIER: KCAL meteorologist Alissa Carlson Schwartz fainted Saturday morning during a live TV broadcast.
Schwartz was delivering the weather as part of the 7 AM updates when she was stricken. She began leaning forward, lost consciousness and slumped to the desk before she could even start her report.
There was a slight delay before the show cut to a commercial. There has since been no update on Carlson’s condition.
Carlson, a former Mrs. America contestant, has a heart condition. In 2014, during a weather report on another station, she vomited on set during a weather report. The ensuing tests discovered a leaky heart valve.
