After two dozen years in the radio business, William Gannon has initiated the process to sign off the air. Gannon Broadcasting has agreed to sell the stations County Y100, WGRY-AM 1230 Greatest Music Ever and Decades 101.1 WQON-FM to Sheryl and Jerry Coyne, the co-owners of Blarney Stone Broadcasting Inc. Gannon, who suffered a stroke on July 25, 2011, said getting out of the business for his personal health and pursuing his other business interests were the reasons for the sale.
