Where is Julie Wunder?

UPDATE on March 8, 2013: Lots of folks are wondering why Julie Wunder isn’t delivering her weather reports on WLOS lately. She reports that she is sick again. Here’s the background.

The WLOS personality has been MIA from recent newscasts. From her blog, Running in a skirt, here’s the story:

I have always seemed to have some really bad luck when it comes to getting sick.  I seem to catch whatever I’m exposed to and when I do get sick, I usually end up with some sort of secondary infection beyond the common cold.

I’ve been that way my whole life.  My mom says my baby book has entries with ear infections every other month for the first several years of my life.

My sophomore year in high school I got pneumonia and mono and had to be homeschooled for two months until I got better.

For most of my adult life I’ve been able to keep it under control.  I’ve caught the colds early and tried to stay away from situations that could make me sick.  That all changed a year and a half ago.  I pushed through an illness and damaged my vocal chords pretty badly.  I’ve had trouble ever since.  Every virus I get immediately seems to completely kill my voice.  That’s a problem for someone who essentially talks for a living.

That’s what has kept me sitting here pretty sick for over a week now.  I caught something and lost my voice.  It’s been a very rough week and I had some bad complications with my throat, but I think (I hope) I’m over the worst.

Wunder’s blog is here.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Julie.

    Jay, Ingrid, Karen and Julie ALL do a great job. Evidently “wunderlusting was never taught any manners. My Granny always told us “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all”. Best wishes and get well soon.

    Have you talked to Dr. about GERD? Baptist hospital in Winston Salem ear nose and throat department has a vocal cord specialist who has performed surgeries on world famous news reporters

  16. wunderlusting says:

    how many weather people do we need anyway?? Julie, nothing personal, doesnt belong on the air…her delivery is flat, and appearance is long in the tooth.Ingrid and Karen do a much better job and can co anchor as well. Julie is more suited for pbs.

  17. craggybender says:

    Get her back because I can’t take Jay anymore. I like Ingrid though.
