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.

Don’t You Just Hate Line Jumpers at the Store?

You are in line at the grocery store, when a new checkout opens up and the last guy (gal) in line scoots over to the newly opened register leaving those who were there ahead of him forced to now get behind him. I call these people "line jumpers." They are people who will not get an invitation from me to be anywhere near me in the future.

Don't you just love it when people do things and then won't own up to it? Such is the case this morning after I noticed that the fence around our radio tower at the station parking lot was struck by someone who apparently decided not to say anything and just drive off.
