Update: Erie, PA Friday March 2, 2018 11:05am EST
Due to blown transformers locally, the Hagmann Studio is currently without power. This evening’s broadcast is cancelled. Our scheduled guest, Dr Ted Broer and Healthmasters will rejoin the program at their regularly scheduled time on Friday March 16, 2018 at 7:00pm EST.
The Hagmann Daily Show will broadcast today, as Joe and I are able to produce the program from our home studios and we both currently have power and internet connections. Our special Friday guest on The Hagmann Daily Show is Mark Goodwin, Founder of Prepper Recon.
Please keep us in your prayers. To reiterate everyone at Team Hagmann are in regular communication and we are safe in our respective homes. Since the show’s inception, we have been huge proponents of being prepared for moments such as these and we encourage all of our viewers and listeners to take this time to reflect on your state of preparedness.
Over the past 12 hours, we have been reminded of the importance of storing extra (easily accessible) batteries, emergency lighting, auxiliary cell phone chargers, heat sources and up-to-date weather apps on your mobile devices.
God bless all of you and have a powerful and productive weekend. To our Patreon subscribers, we will engage our special “members only” Patreon gathering this Sunday, March 4, 2018 at 7:00pm EST. Tech Eric will send emails to each of you with the link that enables your participation with Doug, Joe and myself.

We apologize to all of our listeners and viewers for the abrupt ending of The Hagmann Report this evening, Thursday, March 1, 2018.
As we were wrapping up our second interview of the evening with debut guest, Debbie Aldrich, significant portions of Erie County and the Great Lakes region lost power due to intense, heavy snowfall in a very compressed period of time.
Currently the Hagmann Studio is without power but (as best) we ascertain there was no damage to any hardware that we rely on to bring the program to all of you, every evening.
I talked with the entire team within the past few minutes and everyone: Doug, Joe and Tech Eric are all home safe and there are no emergency concerns within the group.
This is a direct answer to prayer as the visibility driving home was less than ten feet with volumes of snow flying horizontally across the roads, downed tree limbs and extremely dark streets.
I personally witnessed traffic lights “explode,” sending showers of sparks splaying down to street level, reminding me of the occasional shorts that blow stage lamps on TV and film sets.
There is a major storm warning in effect for the next sixteen hours and the media are terming this event a “cyclone bomb.”
As of now, we are planning on running our regular broadcast schedule for all three Hagmann Report programs tomorrow, Friday, March 2, 2018. Please check my Twitter feed for immediate updates should weather worsen or our electric/cable services experience further interruption.
Thank you for your patience and prayers and a special Hagmann Report “Thank You” to Debbie Aldrich, who was interrupted mid-sentence, and to Keith Hanson and Dane Wigington, who were our last two scheduled guests for the evening.
