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.

Job Well Done, Coach Dave Swisegood!

As the sun was setting Monday night, it was apparent that Dave Swisegood had coached his final baseball game of his illustrious career. His Southeastern Suns lost in the regionals to the Payson Seymour Indians in the Mendon Regional by the score of 17 to 2 ending his final season as a head baseball coach. Swisegood’s career covered 60 years and he leaves the game as the winningest high school coach in the State of Illinois with 950 wins.
