Gary York resides in Pilot Mountain with his wife Charlotte at Vintage Rose Wedding Estate. A 1965 graduate of Guilford College, he received his MBA from Bucknell in 1968. His early career included service at York Oil Company and Neighbors Stores. His passion for celebrating community servants led him to begin producing “People Doing Good For Others” on WPAQ in 1998, which fueled his interest in local broadcasting and ultimately his purchase of 100.9 WIFM in February 2004. His dedication to the community extends beyond the walls of WIFM to include a photo ministry, a monthly newsletter, “The Communicator,” now in its 24th year, and prior service as a Surry County Commissioner and member of the Mount Airy City Schools Board of Education. He currently serves as a Guilford College Trustee and is a member of the Surry County Educational Foundation. WIFM’s Call to Action is a direct result of Mr. York’s benevolent spirit:
Be generous to the community.
Advocate worthy causes.
Speak for those who need a voice.
