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.

Are You Ready to be Taxed on The Miles Your Drive?

There was a story aired on KHQA Wednesday night regarding the potential to have a tax levied on the amount of miles you drive.  The state of Oregon drivers, according to an article in a recent USA Today newspaper, could get a taste of what the future may hold for the rest of us. They will pay taxes not on the amount of gasoline their cars burn, but on the number of miles they drive.

The Famous O.J. Simpson Bronco Chase Was 20 Years Ago

Most people remember just where and what they were doing 20 years ago when OJ Simpson was being "chased ", and I use that word loosely, by the Los Angeles Police Department. It’s quite possible that you, like a good number of Americans, were glued to a television set following the progress of a white Ford Bronco as it cruised along a Los Angeles freeway with the police in slow-motion pursuit.
