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.

We Are a Mobile Society, So In What State Were You Born?

With the weather as hot as it was over the weekend, it turned out to be a "lost" weekend as far as doing the things I wanted to do. I did manage to make it to Blues in the District Friday night, and while there I ran into a guy from Hannibal who recognized me. Then I met a guy and his wife from Kansas who was there as well. Saturday, I ventured out for dinner and struck up a conversation from some people from Arkansas, Indiana and Florida. Just by chance these occurrences all took place. It almost felt like I was around more "outsiders" than "locals."  It got me to thinking about just how mobile our society is.
