KABC’s Glendale Studios Get All-Clear After Bomb Scare And Evacuations, Highlight Hollywood News
Rebecca Campbell, President of ABC Owned Television Stations Group, said in a live interview on KABC that the decision to do the newscast outside was made quickly. “Immediately when we were evacuated, we all said, ‘OK, here’s the plan.’ It’s also a plan that we’ve practiced in the past; we’ve gone through drills like this. … We going to keep doing this from outside until they tell us it’s OK to go back in.”
A Disney spokesperson earlier issued this statement: “KABC’s facilities in Glendale have been evacuated, following a threat received by the Glendale Police Department. Employees have been safely evacuated. Police are on site, and we’re awaiting word once they have completed a thorough investigation of the location.” Highlight Hollywood reported on the bomb scare earlier. We are grateful everyone is fine.
