The measurement of the J=1-0 line of CO with the IRAM interferometer is reported. The CO line parameters are in good agreement with the result given by Scoville et al. (1993). Thus, CO emission from 3C 48, a radio loud QSO, is definitely detected. The CO emission region is marginally resolved. Source parameters based on the CO line data are discussed.

Key words: radio lines: galaxies – quasars: 3C 48 – galaxies: ISM
