Andy Rooney to End Regular ’60 Minutes’ Broadcasts [VIDEO]
Can you remember a time when Andy Rooney was not on “60 Minutes” each week? This Sunday, the 92-year-old Rooney will announce that this week’s broadcast will be his last regularly-scheduled appearance.
Before his final show-closing remarks, “60 Minutes” will present an interview with Morley Safer, which will take a look at Rooney’s career through the years. He joined CBS in 1949, and began his regular ‘Minutes’ commentary in 1978.
Jeff Fager, CBS News Chariman told Media Bistro, “There’s nobody like Andy and there never will be. He’ll hate hearing this, but he’s an American original.”
Take a look at the video below, in which Rooney admits that he’s grown out-of-touch with popular music. Sooner or later, it happens to all of us, Andy.
