LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A WVLK broadcaster suffered a medical emergency on the air while hosting his afternoon show.

Scott Johnson had just returned to work from vacation and wasn't feeling very well, according to staff at the station. After attempting to make it through the show, an ambulance was called and he is being transported to the hospital.

The exact nature of the medical emergency was not immediately clear.

DJs Kruser and Deidre Ransdell immediately stepped in his place to finish his show.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Scott.
