That suggests that, when WNEW and WOV swapped frequencies and Tx sites, a second tower must have been added in South Kearney. I think 1250 was originally ND-U (5 kW-D/1 kW-N) and probably became 5 kW DA-1 only later (requiring the addition of a second tower in Carlstadt). A second tower for 1250 in Kearney would not have been in the right place for 1130, which was (and still is) deeply nulled to the southwest at night to protect co-channel Class A KWKH in Shreveport LA.

  (And to head off the confusion that's sure to follow the "WNEW" mention 
  above: the WNEW calls originally were on 1250, when WAAM and WODA 
  combined to form a new station in 1934. The NARBA shift in 1941 moved 
  WNEW to 1280, but it didn't stay there long; in December 1941 WNEW 
  swapped frequencies with sister station WOV, broadcasting from Kearney 
  on 1130. The WOV calls stayed on 1280 until 1960 or thereabouts, when it 
  became WADO.)
