The year 1948 saw a number of significant events in radio broadcasting.

Events[edit]

  • 22 March: The Voice of Firestone becomes the first radio program to be aired on both AM and FM radio stations.
  • 12 May: Don McNeill's Breakfast Club appears on television for the first time, via a simulcast on both ABC Radio and ABC TV. The telecast is seen in Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington and New York. Because ABC-TV's New York flagship station WJZ-TV had not signed on yet (and would not for another three months), DuMont flagship WABD carried it live.
