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.

The WCU Building is Quincy’s Little Willis/Sears Tower

It's now known as the Willis Tower in Chicago. The name was changed from the Sears Tower a few years ago. It's a building I have been in several times and I have enjoyed the view from the observation area at the top of the 110 story structure.

Weeks after the City of Quincy took the brunt of a huge wind storm, the city has slowly worked its way back to some degree of normalcy. With thousands of trees downed by winds in excess of 75 miles an hour and 95% of the city without any power for days, the cleanup project was enormous.

I love Counting Cars in the K of C Parking Lot the Next Morning

Another summer has come and gone, at least that is what people around here say once the Knights of Columbus BBQ has ended. The event featured large crowds with plenty of food and drinks. Perhaps not enough food and too many drinks for some people. I always make a point to drive by the K of C grounds the mornings after each day's events and count the cars that never made it home "last night".

Drivers Desperately Needed for Meals on Wheels

Most people, including myself, have no idea how many home-bound elderly people there are in this area. I can tell you that there are at least 200 home-bound elderly people who receive a hot meal each day thanks to Meals on Wheels. These seniors live alone and they depend on the Meals on Wheels program for what, for many, is the only meal they will have each day.
