  • 10 January – WTFF (The Fellowship Forum, a station formerly owned by the Ku Klux Klan) in Mt. Vernon, Virginia (today WFED) changes its call letters to WJSV. While the call letters were claimed to stand for "Jesus Saves Virginia," it actually stood for James S.

Vance arranges an affiliation deal with CBS Radio, which also involved operations and programming for WJSV..
