Abstract: Let $F$ be a field of characteristic $p$ ($p = 0$ allowed), and let $F(t)$ be the rational function field in one variable over $F$. We say $F$ is Brauer-Hilbertian if the following holds. For every $\alpha$ in the Brauer group $\operatorname {Br}(F(t))$ of exponent prime to $p$, there are infinitely many specializations $t \to a \in F$ such that the specialization $\bar \alpha \in \operatorname {Br}(F)$ is defined and has exponent equal to that of $\alpha$. We show every global field is Brauer-Hilbertian, and if $K$ is Hilbertian and $F$ is finite separable over $K(t)$, $F$ is Brauer-Hilbertian.
