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 9-11 Artifact at City Hall Represents Everything We Stand For

As you drive by the Quincy City Hall on Maine Street today, make a special attempt to look at the rusted out and bent television tower that is located in the Martin Luther King Jr. Freedom Plaza. That rusted out tower sat atop Building #1 of the World Trade Center in New York 13 years ago this morning. It ended up in the rubble of the two towers that collapsed later that morning as a result of the attack on the buildings in 2001.

Food Pantries Still Need Your Help

Most of us get up in the morning, have our breakfast and head off to work. Then leave work and head home for dinner. For many people that is not the case, and the food pantries in the area will prove that to be true. The demand for food from people in this area continues to climb and the pantries are struggling to keep up with that demand.
