Radio New Zealand stopped live broadcast for a short time this morning after staff were forced to evacuate the building.

The Fire Service were called to the building at about 10.30am, but on investigation found that it was a false alarm.

Nine to Noon was interrupted by the call-out, playing songs and pre-recorded messages until staff could return to the studio about 15 minutes later.

Presenter Kathryn Ryan apologised on-air for the change in schedule "due to circumstances beyond our control".
