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.

Here’s My Plan to Save the City Some Money, What’s Yours?

Whether you agree with the new budget cuts or not, the City of Quincy is between a rock and a hard place.

Just Who is This ‘Chickenman’?

You see him at Quincy Gems baseball games and hear him on the air with us from time to time on Y101 Radio, but do you really know Dave Comer, the guy they call “Chickenman”? I took the opportunity to ask “Chickenman” a few questions so we all could get to know him a little better and even I learned something I didn’t know about him.
