Former CBS Atlanta weather person Dagmar Midcap lands a new job in San Diego

dagmar-midcapFormer CBS Atlanta weather forecaster Dagmar Midcap left Atlanta more than a year ago, distraught over a former boyfriend’s suicide.

The Vancouver native moved to Los Angeles, hired an agent and began seeking jobs. A couple months ago, in an interview, she said she’d prefer to do something outside of TV news but was willing to go back if need be.

Alas, that’s where she has landed: the NBC affiliate in San Diego.

She covered 4, 5, 6, 7 and 11 p.m. newscasts starting today.

“They’re so nice here, some of the friendliest people I’ve ever seen,” Midcap said in an interview this evening. “There’s a sense of family. They’re really easy going.”

CBS Atlanta, in comparison, was “a very tense, miserable environment,” she said. She spent three years at the station and gained a following with her warm, syrupy voice and sweater choices.

With her new job in the pleasant climes of San Diego, Midcap found a place to live three blocks from the water in Del Mar. “It’s a magical place,” she said. “I love the water. I love the ocean.”

“It’s really exciting to have Dagmar Midcap join our team and to have a local weather presence again, “said Greg Dawson, Vice President for News for NBC 7 San Diego, in a story posted on the NBC website. “Dagmar was extremely popular in Atlanta and we’re sure she will make an immediate and positive impact here in San Diego.”

MIdcap said they’ll allow her down the road to do environmental stories and pieces from the San Diego Zoo. They will also allow her to host TV shows as well if those opportunities arise. “It’s written into my contract,” she said.

That “suicide” angle was always phony. She wanted another cushy tv assignment, where she can parade her ignorance and her two prominent assets. Only idiot men are interested. She’s a joke.

As a native Atlantan, and proud southerner, I am stunned reading some of these posts. If you can’t say something pleasant about this bright young woman who was ripped by tragedy……………You should probubly take up playing “dodge cars” in the new hot lanes. Good luck, Dagmar……..and Godspeed

Dagmar Midcap is the sorriest excuse for a news personality that Atlanta has ever seen. What a joke. Glad she is gone.

Del Mar? Awesome place. You need about around $10 million, and there would be no reason to ever leave. Vacations would remind you of how bad the other side lives.

But just getting out of Atlanta is a good move, was for us.

Never found her attractive, she had that Disney personality too. Stephany Fisher is way more attractive in my opinion.

I find it interesting that people who obviously didn’t care for Midcap feel the need to bash her here. Get a grip. She wasn’t my favorite and sure, she had her issues, but does it give you some sort of rush to spew all this hate and negativity for a woman who HAS LEFT TOWN?? SMH

San Diego has better just about everything compared to Atlanta. Except the cost of living. Probably not an issue for Dagmar. You go girl!

Where the heck is Jennifer Valdez, anyway? So you dropped a kid. Must be nice having three months off. Try to feel pity for those who are lucky to get three days off, and I’ll try to feel sorry for you -nah, never mind.

Hmm, Atlanta or San Diego? Dagmar you made the right choice. Wish I could join you. Unfortunately, I’m still stuck in a hellhole.

I’m glad she said what she did about the local CBS situation. I get SO tired of hearing them say they’re asking the “tough questions” about EVERYTHING. Dagmar was the only thing upbeat about the CBS newscast. When she left, I switched to 11Alive where there’s actually some positive news being reported. Sorry, AJC, but WSB tends to grind on the gloom and doom circuit worse than CBS.

I think the VP’s quote needs a little tweaking: “Dagmar’s hooters were extremely popular in Atlanta and we’re sure she will make an immediate and positive impact here in San Diego.”

I never could figure out why guys went to gaga over her. Nothing really remarkable about her IMO.
