Media Bistro’s TVNewser blog posted an internal email from Turner Broadcasting System (TBS, Inc.) today about a bed bug problem in the Time Warner Center. TVNewser writes:
TVNewser has learned the human resources department of TBS Inc. has sent out an email this afternoon alerting staffers of a bed bug problem in their New York City offices at Time Warner Center — home to CNN, CNNMoney.com and other Time Warner entities.
The Time Warner Center Facilities Department advises that bed bugs have been detected in Time Warner Center. This determination was made after testing was conducted on several floors of the building.
A CNN spokesperson tells TVNewser, “the building management is addressing the issue and is taking immediate action.”

An earlier report (in Curbed) of bed bugs on the 18th, 19th, and 20th floors at the 423 W. 55th Street address of the Time Warner Center in July was later said by the same blog to be a false alarm, apparently after a canine scent detection team found “no evidence of bed bug activity”.
It’s unclear from the TVNewser report whether the current bed bug problems are in the same zone of the building (indicating the dogs were wrong) or whether today’s bed bugs are in another area of the complex.
