    Suspicious Package Sent to WMAL News Offices in Washington, D.C.

    This is a second local media outlet in Washington D.C. to get a security threat. Earlier in the Week Fox 5 WTTG faced an unrelated security threat.

    Host Rush Limbaugh's show is broadcast daily on the talk station.
    A suspicious package was delivered to radio station WMAL News' offices in Washington D.C. on Thursday, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed with local authorities.

    The package was cleared and no hazardous materials found, police told THR.

    The station tweeted a picture of the package on Thursday afternoon with the caption, "We were evacuated today due to a suspicious package. It did not contain explosives and no one was injured."

    WMAL is a talk radio station that runs Rush Limbaugh's program daily. The names on the package possibly refer to other radio hosts featured on the station: Mark Levin, Mary Walter, Chris Plante and Larry O'Connor. Some of those hosts are also frequent guests on Fox News.

    However, it plays into the narrative that Democrats aren't the only ones receiving suspicious packages.

    Note this is one of many reported bomb threats that have been taking place all over the country this week including CNN Yesterday.

    Employees at a news talk radio station and a music station in D.C.'s Friendship Heights neighborhood can go back into their officers after police cleared an investigation into a suspicious package.

    D.C. police responded to the building at 4400 Jenifer Street NW just after 4 p.m. Thursday and blocked off 44th Street NW at Jenifer Street NW as they investigated.

    The offices for talk radio station WMAL and popular music station mix107.3 are in the building.

    Police said they gave the "all clear" at about 5:45 p.m.
