There are two pairs of AM towers near Wellington Circle. The answer
depends which pair you are talking about. The tall widely-spaced pair
belongs to WEZE 590. These have been there since 1937 (although the
original self-supporting towers that had stood on that spot for maybe
40 years were replaced by the present guy-supported towers in the late
70s or early 80s) . The much shorter and closer-spaced pair (shorter
in absolute terms; closer spaced both in absolute terms and in
relation to their height) belong to WXKS (AM). One of those is also
used by WILD. Those have been there for perhaps 15 years.
