UPDATE: CNN’s New York staff is being let back in to the network’s New York headquarters after being evacuated late Thursday night due to a bomb threat.

CNN’s Brian Stelter tweeted that the headquarters had been evacuated while the NYPD investigated. No explosives were found, the NYPD said.

The network aired taped programming due to the disruption, including “Anderson Cooper 360” on the East Coast.

Stelter also tweeted that 58th Street outside the company’s Columbus Circle headquarters was closed down by police to traffic. A rep for CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment late Thursday.

CNN anchor Don Lemon tweeted that CNN’s floor in the Time Warner Center was evacuated in the middle of his nightly live show.
