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.

We Are a Mobile Society, So In What State Were You Born?

With the weather as hot as it was over the weekend, it turned out to be a "lost" weekend as far as doing the things I wanted to do. I did manage to make it to Blues in the District Friday night, and while there I ran into a guy from Hannibal who recognized me. Then I met a guy and his wife from Kansas who was there as well. Saturday, I ventured out for dinner and struck up a conversation from some people from Arkansas, Indiana and Florida. Just by chance these occurrences all took place. It almost felt like I was around more "outsiders" than "locals."  It got me to thinking about just how mobile our society is.

It’s Time to End the NFL’s Four Game Pre-Season Schedule

It was about a year ago that I ripped the National Football League and I will take the opportunity to do so again. It was learned yesterday that the St. Louis Rams have lost Sam Bradford, their starting Quarterback, for the season after suffering a torn ACL in his left knee.  It is the same knee that suffered a torn ACL in the middle of last season. The real sad thing is that it happened in yet another meaningless NFL pre-season football game.

My good friend Revona Blanton has informed me that today is National D.J. Day which I was completely unaware of. She asked the question on Facebook "What D.J. did you listen to when you were growing up?"  For me it's very simple.  It was Cousin Brucie on WABC Radio in New York.

How Would You Like to Be Paid $4 Million to Shut up Like NBC’s David Gregory?

In a day when people are living from paycheck to paycheck just to get by it is hard to read a story like the one I read yesterday. Apparently NBC-TV is going to pay David Gregory $4 million, that's right $4 million, to not discuss his exit from NBC's 'Meet the Press' program. With that said, I wonder what Matt Schmidt must be thinking.

State Fair Attendance Down in Illinois and Iowa

Attendance at the Illinois and Iowa State Fairs showed declines from the previous year. The main culprit for the decline was rainy weather in the Midwest, which affected several days of the fairs in Springfield and Des Moines.

Here’s How the Amtrak Train Turns Around

Each and every day there are two Amtrak trains that serve the Quincy area with trips to and from Chicago. The Illinois Zephyr leaves Quincy at 6:12 mornings and returns each night at 10:23. The Carl Sandburg departs Quincy each night at 5:30 and arrives in Chicago at 9:58. That train then returns the next morning at 7:35 from Chicago and arrives in Quincy at 12:03 p.m. With both trains routes ending in Quincy, I always wondered how the train actually turns around in West Quincy to prepare for the trip back to Chicago.
