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 ramifications of this closure are far reaching. Not only does it leave a void in the Mall, but it may be a prelude to other stores closing as well.

‘All in The Family’ Needs to Return So We Can Laugh Again

It was January of  1971 when CBS took a giant leap into the unknown by agreeing to air a program called "All in the Family". That took place on this date in 1971.The country was dealing with a war in Vietnam, civil unrest in many of our cities and people were generally unhappy.  They needed to laugh at something or somebody to remind them of what it was like to smile again. That something was "All in the Family" and that someone was Archie Bunker, played by Carroll O'Connor.

QPD’s Spring Citizen Police Academy Accepting Applicants

It was one of the most interesting classes I have ever taken and it is available for the public again. I am referring to the Quincy Police Department’s 2015 Spring Citizen’s Police Academy. I graduated from the class in May of 2003. It was the quickest 10 weeks of my life and each week when the class would end I did not want to leave.
