Police evacuated the CNN offices in NY due to a phoned-in bomb threat for about two hours on Thusday.

The bomb alert comes less than two months after CNN offices at the Time Warner Center were similarly evacuated due to what later turned out to be a pipe bomb, sent by Trump supporter Cesar Sayoc.

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

"The caller with a Southern accent had claimed there were five bombs placed around the building", he reported.

Lemon said he was in the middle of preparations for his show when the order to evacuate was issued.

The network temporarily went to taped programming for about half hour before going live from the street while police investigated.

Before allowing employees to return to work, the NYPD confirmed that a police investigation was taking place at Columbus Circle but said that the threat had not yet been substantiated.

Lemon said fire alarms rang and a loudspeaker told them they needed to evacuate during his live show.

Reacting to the threat, CNN's Chris Cuomo said that everyone was "fine" despite the evacuation. We grabbed what we could and got out of the building and now, we are standing outside of the building, ' Lemon said on CNN.

A bomb squad, police cars and emergency vehicles were rushed to the scene.

Authorities are investigating a reported bomb threat at CNN's NY office.

The "all clear" was given by police shortly before midnight after several dozen police officers searched the building floor by floor.
