Gary D. King; (1934-2019), founder and

Station Manager of WYAR-FM

     The Heritage Radio Society family mourns the passing of our founder, Gary D. King, on 28 August 2019, from complications of advanced Parkinson’s Disease. Gary built WYAR-FM in the basement of his home in Yarmouth after retiring from a long career in local broadcasting, motivated by little more than a stubborn drive to continue the work he felt he had been put on this earth to do. Although declining health obliged him to relinquish some responsibility for daily operations since 2013, he was able to live at home and continue as the station’s Chief Operator and Station Manager until the very end.

Management of WYAR-FM has passed to a transition team and plan to which Gary himself contributed much over the course of the last several years, with the intention that WYAR-FM should continue in his vision as to what he himself termed “The most important thing that I have done in my career.”

We are challenged, yet privileged, to continue that vision.

Please note that station email and telephone contact numbers have both changed effective October 2019
