February 13 - NBC and Westinghouse Broadcasting consummate a station ownership trade which saw NBC attaining owned-and-operated AM and TV stations in Philadelphia (renamed WRCV), and Westinghouse receiving NBC's AM, FM and TV stations in Cleveland (all of which took the KYW callsign). A later legal battle found that NBC engaged in extortion to make the trade happen, even threatening to pull the NBC-TV affiliation off of both Westinghouse's TV stations in Philadelphia and Boston. The swap was reversed by the FCC in June 1965.
November 9 - The Pittsburgh Police "emergency band" frequency goes wild receiving Cuban police dispatches and squawks from a Sheffield, England public safety band. The transmissions are never explained but cease by nightfall.
