  • 13 October: House Party ends its run on network radio (CBS).[1]
  • 31 December: ABC Radio ceases operations as one network; it would be divided into four specialized networks (Information, Entertainment, Direction and Contemporary) on New Year's Day 1968. This is due to some of ABC's owned-and-operated stations (WABC, WLS, WXYZ, KQV) airing Top 40 formats that directly conflicted with ABC Radio's long-form, entertainment programming, in addition for ABC's desire to gain more than one affiliate in a market. The Breakfast Club and Paul Harvey would transfer to the American Entertainment Network, extended news blocks would move to the American Information Network, and the aforementioned ABC O&Os became affiliates of the American Contemporary Network.
