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.

‘The District’ Begins Flag Purchasing Campaign

I received a newsletter this morning from The District in Quincy. In it, Travis Brown of wrote the following, “As Independence Day came and went, we have noticed that the American flags throughout The District are becoming more tattered and worn. This doesn't reflect well upon our City or our patriotism as a community, and The District is organizing an effort to change this.”

Where Would You Hold Next Year’s Fireworks in Quincy? [Poll]

It was an absolutely perfect night for fireworks last Friday night. The annual fireworks display in Quincy took place at the Illinois Veterans Home. In other years it has been held on the Quincy Riverfront. So I ask the question, if you had to make the decision on where the fireworks display should take place for next July 4, would you select the Illinois Veteran's Home or the Quincy Riverfront (or someplace else)?

The Bayview Bridge at Quincy will temporarily carry both east and westbound traffic into Quincy or motorists may cross the Mississippi River Bridge on I-72/US 36 over the Mark Twain Memorial Bridge at Hannibal.
