Must have been a simple NARBA move, because even the WNEW 50th Anniversary
book only gives it one sentence-- "On March 29, 1941, WNEW changed to its
present frequency, 1130 kilocycles."   In fact, the station's hook-up with
the Daily News newspaper and  how it began to offer news around the clock
(which it began doing on 1 January 42) gets much more attention in the book
than the move over to 1130... (From "WNEW-- Where the Melody Lingers On".)
