KDKA chief meteorologist Jeff Verszyla reads “Captain Buckleboots on the Naughty Step” to Amy Snyder’s first grade class at Wexford Elementary School. Verszyla’s son Alexander is in Snyder’s class. He was let go by the station on Friday.

Chief meteorologist Jeff Verszyla tweeted Friday “FYI to all my faithful viewers for the last 23 years…today I was let go from job at KDKA. Thanks for inviting me into your home. I truly appreciate you all!”

When contacted by telephone a person who answered the phone at KDKA-TV said “there is no comment at this time,” when asked about Verszyla.

In another tweet, Verszyla said there was no reason given and that he was upset he was not given the opportunity to properly say good-bye on the broadcast.

“…but please know I appreciate all of you.”

Viewers and fans offered words of encouragment via social media.
