Robert Novak, a syndicated columnist and FOX News contributor, has been diagnosed with a brain tumor and was admitted Sunday to a Boston hospital.

“On Sunday, July 27, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. I have been admitted to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, where doctors will soon begin appropriate treatment. I will be suspending my journalistic work for an indefinite but, God willing, not too lengthy period," Novak, 77, said in a statement to his publisher, according to HumanEvents.com.

The Associated Press reported Novak had been visiting his daughter on Cape Cod when he was rushed to the hospital.

Human Events magazine is published by the same company that publishes the Evans-Novak Political Report, Eagle Publishing.

The diagnosis comes less than a week after Novak was cited in Washington, D.C., for failing to yield to a pedestrian. Novak struck a man while driving his convertible. The man did not suffer serious injuries.
