KNX-KFWB Studios Evacuated Due To Bomb Scare
September 25, 2012 at 10:49 AM (PT)
A suspicious package at the studios of CBS RADIO News KNX-A and KFWB ASSET TRUST News-Talk KFWB-A/LOS ANGELES took the station's staffs out of the building and the stations' local programming off the air while the bomb squad checked the situation out.
The scare began at about 8:24a (PT) in the second-floor lobby of the building along the 5600 block of Wilshire Blvd. KNX aired programming from sister News KCBS-A-KFRC-F/SAN FRANCISCO until returning from emergency studios at 10:40a, while KFWB aired a speech by President OBAMA abruptly returning to syndicated talker DAVE RAMSEY at about 9:42a.
An all-clear was given at the Wilshire Blvd. operation at about 10:45a, with the package, which was ticking, apparently containing only a clock.
