Andy Rooney To Sign Off ’60 Minutes’ After 33 Years
Seems like Andy has been around forever. I’ve always enjoyed how he can get his point across on just about any subject, while injecting his own special brand of humor. He truly is one of a kind. I’ll miss him.
After 33 years of piquant and sometimes irascible commentary, 92-year-old Andy Rooney will surrender his regular gig on CBS’ legendary newsmagazine “60 Minutes” this weekend.
Rooney will sign off with a final piece — his 1,097th — on Sunday’s program, preceded by a retrospective segment on his career with longtime colleague Morley Safer, the network said in a news release Tuesday.
