Jeffrey Dorsey

My radio career began at KIEE-FM in Harrisonville, Missouri which later became KCFX in Kansas City. I worked there for 4 years before landing a position at WTAD and KHQA-TV here in Quincy doing a radio show and play-by-play sports. After doing TV Sports for KHQA, I worked for both WTAD and WQCY-FM (99Q). I moved over to WGEM as Operations Manager and then returned to WTAD as General Manager. In 2001 I joined Y101. I have been fortunate enough to win 6 Silver Dome Awards from the Illinois Broadcasters Association , including 5 for best Play-By-Play and one for Best Radio Show Entertainer. My favorite music is the Blues. The New York Yankees and the Kansas City Chiefs are my favorite teams. I played baseball for 24 years and my claim to fame is a double off of Rick Sutcliffe when we both played in Kansas City.

NBA’s Decision to Allow Uniform Advertising is Not a Good One

It was announced recently that the National Basketball Association has decided to allow advertising on the uniforms of the players beginning in the 2017-18 season. It is a move that will generate at least $100-million annually. The NBA is the first major sport to make this move and I for one hope it is the last one to do so.

Would You Allow 200 Bees to Sting You? This Guy Did!

It was about four years ago when I was working on a fence post in my yard when I disturbed a nest of bees who came swarming out of the ground and attacked me.  I was swatting them away and the more I swatted the more they kept coming. After several stings, I decided swatting was not the right approach and I just stood a still as possible. How I did it is beyond me.  The bees were crawling all over me.
