WSMV lays off the actor who has portrayed the station's weather mascot for 24 years — and Snowbird's Facebook page is gone.

Looks like Snowbird has flown the coop.

The actor who has played Channel 4's beloved weather mascot for 24 years, Steven Good, confirmed today his position was eliminated, one of at least half a dozen employees who were told to leave the station immediately Wednesday.

There's no word on if WSMV will keep the mascot alive.

The station is between general managers — a new one is supposed to arrive in a few weeks — and the station's human resources director, Deborah Mills, did not immediately return a phone call for comment.
