Good evening. I'm Shannon Young in for Jean Jadhon. The FBI is making progress in the anthrax investigation. The Bush administration says the agency has identified the Trenton, New Jersey mailbox from which tainted letters to Tom Brokaw and Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle were mailed. In the meantime, another news organization is reporting being targeted. The New York Post says a woman in its offices has tested positive for the bacteria. And investigators are still sweeping CBS headquarters after an assistant to Dan Rather was exposed. Gretchen Carlson joins us live from New York with more.

Life at CBS headquarters in New York hasn t changed much since the announcement an assistant to Dan Rather has the skin form of anthrax. The Evening News is still being broadcast here and no part of the building has been evacuated.
But there is one major difference the story that s been the lead on the CBS news every night has now hit home.

Health officials are back inside CBS for a second day of testing. They re swabbing peoples noses and conducting interviews with people who worked in the vicinity of the employee who tested positive for the disease as a precaution.

Investigators are also inside the building now because this is more than just a health concern it s also a criminal investigation.

(TRACK)

While officials believe the anthrax got into CBS via the mail no suspicious letter has been found. That s why environmental samples are now being taken from various sites throughout the building. But health officials believe it is unlikely that anyone else who works at CBS is now at risk.
Across the river in New Jersey though a postal worker HAS tested positive for the disease. Investigators believe she touched the tainted letters that were sent to NBC s Tom Brokaw and Senator Daschle. Gretchen Carlson, CBS News, New York. ))
