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.

Service Person in Afghanistan is Missing Her Dog in Maywood

We got an email today at the radio station asking if we can get the word out about a dog that is missing since last Friday night on Highway Z by Maywood, Missouri. The dog was staying with the father of a woman who is now serving our country in Afghanistan. Her husband is really not wanting to have to tell her that her dog is missing because that will make it more difficult on her overseas. So he is appealing to us to get the word out.
