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 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. Forty-two years later, I am still doing what I love.

Where Can You Get a Good Ole Fashioned Ice Cream Cone?

It's summertime and the "livin" is easy and made easier with an ice cream cone in hand. It seems finding places that sell ice cream cones isn't as easy as it used to be. Oh, the fast food places offer soft ice cream cones but there are few locations where you can actually get hard scooped ice cream cones in the area.

Who Decided to Have Two Beds to a Room in Hospitals?

I was recently reading an article in the AARP Magazine about hospitals in America. The article stated that more than 180-thousand  people die every year from hospital errors and who the top hospitals are doing to prevent that from happening.

School Bus Drivers Needed

Some 23 million students get up each morning in America and catch the school bus to transport them to school. For the person behind the wheel, the responsibilities are great and don’t just involve the driving of the bus. Unfortunately, in many school districts around the country, including Quincy School District 172, there is a shortage of school bus drivers.

The District is actively looking for new drivers, so we took the opportunity to interview Dan Bartelt, the School Bus Driver Training Director for District 172, and asked him just what is involved in becoming a bus driver for the School District.
