MANHATTAN, NEW YORK: Bed bugs were found at MSNBC’s Manhattan headquarters, that caused staffers to scatter ahead of the left-leaning network’s 'Super Tuesday' coverage, as per the New York Post.

According to a memo obtained by The Post, an “unidentified insect” was spotted on Sunday, March 3, in the newly-revamped studio 3A, which is home to special election coverage and 'The Rachel Maddow Show' at 30 Rock in Midtown.

Exterminator brought in to deal with situation

It was reported that additional studios on the third floor were also shuttered “out of an abundance of caution.”

A source told The Post, "They are scrambling,” adding, “They’ve already been borrowing an unused local studio for some shows in recent weeks. So studio space is tight.”

As per the memo, an exterminator was brought in to help with the situation and treat the studio, green rooms and control room.

"An environmental K-9 detection team will ensure the remediation efforts were complete and will take an extra pass, through extended areas of newsrooms on the third floor,” the memo said.

A source close to the network said that the memo was sent out on Monday, March 4, as part of a wider communication and the “studio reopened an hour or so after memo went out and inspection was complete".

According to the source, MSNBC anchors have gone back to their desks in the main studio and will be live broadcasting the March 5 primary coverage, which includes voting in American Samoa and 16 states.
