CNN evacuated after bomb threat

CNN’s New York Office Evacuates Over Bomb Threat

A bomb threat at the Time Warner Center in Manhattan caused evacuations at CNN's Midtown studios on Thursday night, reports said.

Staffers evacuated the building and Don Lemon's "CNN Tonight" was taken off the air and the network temporarily went to taped programming.

MSNBC anchor Brian Williams interviewed WNYC investigative reporter Jonathan Dienst for the latest.

After CNN resumed its live coverage, Lemon said that a "call was made from the southern part of the United States".

"Several fire alarm bells rang inside CNN's NY newsroom, signaling an evacuation shortly after 10:30 p.m.", CNN itself reported. In the meantime, the network has gone to taped programming.

Fox News reported at 11:16 pm that, according to the NYPD, someone had phoned in that there were five bombs throughout the Time Warner Building, where CNN is housed.

After a sweep of the building, police did not find any explosives and employees were allowed back inside the building just after 11pm.

The New York Police Department tweeted that they were responding to Columbus Circle, where CNN is located, and urged people to avoid the area.

The roughly 90-minute drama recalled a similar evacuation in October after an explosive device was discovered at CNN's NY headquarters. The NYPD later issued an all-clear and said pedestrian traffic was reopened.

Police said the building was evacuated and building security did a preliminary search.
