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.

Mr. Dorsey, Meet Mr. Dorsey! The Teddy Bear Clinic is Sunday

The 26th Annual Teddy Bear Clinic will be held this Sunday afternoon from noon to 4pm at Blessing Hospital's main entrance. As the founder of this event 26 years ago, the staff at Blessing Riemann College of Nursing was kind enough to name one of two new gigantic Teddy Bears after me.  He is known as the "Dorsey Bear" and the other is known as "Flo" after Florence Nightingale. This morning I got the chance to meet my namesake in our studios.

Carson held the position for 30 years from 1962 to 1992.  Believe it or not, I actually have played a very minor role in the show’s success under Jay Leno.
