Star 94 morning host Cindy Simmons has had a rough year after recovering from breast cancer. But she had a big announcement this morning: her boyfriend Eric gave her an engagement ring this past weekend, two years after their first date.

“I’m just glad to have some good news,” she said on the air today. “I’m really happy. I can’t stop smiling!”

“He’s such a good man,” she added. “I didn’t sleep at all. I’m so tired and I don’t care. I just want to run laps around the building.”

He had Maggiano’s food set up on a table at a park in Brookhaven, gave Cindy’s five-year-old daughter Lily a gold cross necklace, then presented Cindy the big gift.

They are tentatively planning a wedding between Thanksgiving and Christmas later this year.

Simmons, 39, divorced a few years back so this would be her second marriage. Eric has never married.

Ghost of UGA VII:

Bobby-O can ask whatever he wants. She is a public figure in radio business. Of course, she does not have to answer and other people guessing about her past life is just gossip. And yes, she is pretty !

Just so you know ....

I think her 1st marriage was to “Ray” of Cindy & Ray (Star 94) … maybe you could ask him why the 1st marriage ended…..

Cindy … you’re overloaded on the the mascara … go about 1/4 that much.

She wasn’t married to Ray. They are just co-hosts of the show. Why their marriage ended is only their business. Congrats Cindy.

Sorry she has had a rough year and I am glad she is healthy now. But I can’t stand to listen to star 94….they are the most annoying people.

I didn’t know she had been sick. I’m glad she’s well but I still can’t stand her or Ray on the radio
