  • 15 March – The Academy Awards are broadcast on the radio in their entirety for the first time. They are broadcast on ABC and the Armed Forces Radio.
  • 12 April – The death of President Franklin D. Roosevelt interrupts programming on radio networks in the United States. The most infamous example is the announcement on CBS by John Charles Daly which interrupted "Wilderness Road", a program he was narrating.
  • 15 August – Gyokuon-hōsō: Emperor Hirohito's recorded announcement of the unconditional surrender of Japan is broadcast on the radio a little after noon (Japan Standard Time). This is probably the first time an Emperor of Japan has been heard by the common people. Delivered in formal classical Japanese and without directly referring to surrender, the speech is not immediately easily understood by ordinary people.
