Jeffrey Dorsey

My radio career began at KIEE-FM in Harrisonville, Missouri which later became KCFX in Kansas City. I worked there for four 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 six Silver Dome Awards from the Illinois Broadcasters Association, including five for best Play-By-Play and one for Best Radio Show Entertainer. I also began the annual Teddy Bear Clinic for Kids at Blessing Hospital in 1989 and am co-founder (1986) of the annual St. Patrick’s Parade. 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. Years later, I am still doing what I love.

It was July 20th, 1969 and the world was riveted to their TV sets watching what was once the unthinkable, a man walking on the moon. I was 15 years old in New York and was glued to the family TV set like everyone around here was to KHQA or WGEM.

Who Would You Like To See Perform in Concert in Quincy?

What Quincy needs is a really good "big" name concert. I have heard that comment from people for years. The last "big" name concert I can remember was Bret Michaels when he came to Quincy a few years ago. I have wondered why we don't have one "big" concert a year in Quincy.

This is Why We Are Holding ‘The Roast’ to End Alzheimer’s

By now you know there’s some fundraising Comedy Roast to fight Alzheimer’s coming up this Saturday night at the Elks Lodge. They say a good laugh can cure a lot of problems and there will be many laughs Saturday night as I sit in the hot seat getting roasted. Well, a laugh won’t cure Alzheimer’s Disease, but it might take your mind off of this dreaded disease even for just an hour or so. If that happens for those dealing with Alzheimer’s then it is all worth it.
