LOS ANGELES (AP) - A suspicious, beeping package that prompted the evacuation of Los Angeles all-news radio station KNX turned out to be a box full of clocks.

The station's news anchors announced just before 9 a.m. Tuesday that they had been ordered to leave their Wilshire Boulevard newsroom and studio because of a suspicious package discovered in the 27-story building.

The 50,000-watt station switched listeners to the broadcast feed of its sister station, KCBS radio in San Francisco.

KNX anchors were back on the air at 10:45 a.m. and the evacuation order was lifted.

Police spokesman Richard French says a suspicious package that was beeping was found in the lobby area on the building's second floor.

Firefighters and police responded and the bomb squad examined the package, which contained promotional clocks.
