There, she took a job at the regional WBNX-TV channel, and there she led programs on current affairs for 8 years – from 1990 up to 1998.

This program has been exceptionally successful for her, since it was broadcasted nationwide.

In 2007, she got back to the United States where she took on a job of the weather anchor at the WGCL-TV’s Better Mornings, an affiliate of CBS. She achieved the position of the main meteorologist at the WGCL-TV in 2008, when she started to appear on TV in late afternoons and evenings. At the beginning of autumn in the year 2010, Dagmar Midcap left the station, explaining that it happened due to the huge physical and emotional distress.

In the midst of the autumn in the year 2011, she occupied a post of the weather anchor at the KNSD-TV channel, located in San Diego, California.

In particular, she has over 5.5 thousand of followers in Twitter, a noticeably fewer number in Instagram (where she posts photos of her dogs mostly), and over 25 thousand followers on Facebook.
