We observed a Type IIn supernova SN 2008bm (CBET 1320) with the VLA in 8.46 GHz band on 2008 December 05.66 UT. We detect a 3-sigma radio source at the supernova position obtained by Drake et al. (CBET 1320). The flux density of the SN is 143+/-40 uJy. Further observations are underway. We thank the VLA staff of National Radio Astronomical Observatory for carrying out the observations. The NRAO is a facility of the National Science Foundation operated under cooperative agreement by Associated Universities, Inc.
