: Bad news for Dagmar fans (Ralph)

01-29-11, 03:37 AM




Got bored and Googled her just to see what she was up to. Haven't seen her on the air since she hosted "Driving Television"

Bad news:

Midcap, who arrived at WGCL in 2007, said the death of her boyfriend, who took his own life in July 2009, precipitated this departure. (For respect for the family, she requested we not release his name.)

She has been meeting with a grief counselor and therapists to grapple with her loss. She has nightmares and has been unable to sleep soundly. She said she takes medication and sleep aids.

I cant keep doing that, she said. Its starting to affect me on the air. I cant think on the air.

She said she also may have some stress-related vocal cord damage shes worried might be permanent.

That's too bad.

A car gal, too? Let's wish her our best and hope she gets on her feet with another gig.

She's back doing the weather! This time in San Diego.

Sounds like Dagmar has landed on her feet .... San Diego, best weather in the country and a ready supply of able bodied young men circulating in and out of the area!

Guys, guys, lets think practical here! My suggestion is to compensate for her loss let's find her a new boyfriend!

But alas, I am happily involved in a relationship.

Plus, you're closer. :thumbsup:

I was thinking of a different Dagmar. (Generation gap)

The one the '54 Caddy bumper was named after.

I figured you or Sub would understand what I was talking about.

The young guys needn't worry about Dagmar's romantic life, San Diego being home to a very large Navy base I am sure she doesn't have to be lonely unless she chooses to be.

When did you make the move to Manoa, Ben?

10-26-11, 12:43 AM
It's 25 days.

10-26-11, 01:14 AM
Still closer than me. :)

Also - I knew what the other Dagmar was. :thumbsup:

I just saw a quick announcement yesterday about Dagmar being our new meteorologist on my local NBC station! What a trip because I happened to just browse through this thread to read what it's all about, and the conversation is all about her! Damn I'm I lucky to see her on TV now lol

Somebody must have some crazy feelings about her.....haha.:p
