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.

Airport Destination Codes Can Be Confusing

If you have ever flown you have had to ask yourself, "who came up with these airport destination code letters?" Some are obvious and others are way out there. Perhaps the guy or gal who came up with these codes had a long layover someplace and just jotted down letters to cities over a few hundred beers.

Man, It Hurts to Lose a Game, Your Teammates and a Career

The picture on the Herald Whig's Sunday paper said it all. It is a picture of Quincy University's senior second baseman Kory Wisdom lamenting a season ending loss.
