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 happens every year usually around the end of school when athletes realize that their athletic careers have abruptly ended with a season and career ending loss. At this time of year you can open up the Herald Whig and see it in the faces of the losing players.   If you ever played a sport you know how gut wrenching it is when you realize that you have played your last game ever, be it football, basketball or baseball.

Here’s the Real Meaning of Cinco de Mayo

OK, today is the 5th of May, or Cinco de Mayo Day. According to some people it’s a day that commemorates the Mexican Army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). Some people are questioning that. I have my own version of why we celebrate the day.

Just What Do These Letters Stand For?

 

The English language is the toughest language in the world to learn simply because many of our words are spelled the same but mean something different. Take the word "can."  It can be a used as a verb as in "yes, you can do something" or as a noun in "just put it in the can." That is just one word of hundreds like it in our language. Then there are abbreviations for words and acronyms.
