We re-observed the Type IIn supernova SN 2008bm with the Very Large Array to confirm the possible radio detection reported by us (ATel 1865). The observation took place on 2008 December 07.65 UT for 60 minutes in 8.46 GHz band. We do not see any radio detection at the supernova position (CBET 1320). The map rms is 27 uJy. We thank the VLA staff of the 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.
