Gerard Ryan (5 June 1956 – 30 April 2010) was an Irish presenter of radio and television employed by Raidió Teilifís Éireann (RTÉ).
He presented The Gerry Ryan Show on radio station RTÉ 2fm each weekday morning from 1988 until hours before his sudden death.
The Canning brothers now draw level with the Kellys, Paul and Eoin, from Tipperary on eight while the Hendersons from Kilkenny, Pat, Ger and John, also have eight.
But they are still short of Tommy and Pádraig Walsh, who have 10 between them, the most recognised set of brothers in the scheme.
He was presented with a Jacob's Award for this show in 1990.
Ryan hosted several series of television shows, including Secrets, Gerry Ryan Tonight, Ryantown, Gerry Ryan's Hitlist, Ryan Confidential and the first three series of Operation Transformation.
