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 joined 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, Kansas City Royals, Kansas City Chiefs, and St. Louis Blues 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. Forty-two years later, I am still doing what I love.

Want a Moore or VanCamp Sign? Here’s How to Get One.

Coyote Presence in Quincy Threatens Small Pets

I arrived at my home in the city limits of Quincy last week around 9:30 p.m. and to my surprise there stood a small German Shepherd in my driveway. A closer look made it obvious I was wrong and that it was actually a coyote. It ran off once I pulled into the driveway. Wildlife experts are warning people in the Midwest to be aware that this is the time of year when female coyotes begin to care for their pups in dens they have built.
