Andy with a capital letter
NEW YORK — With 1,096 essays for "60 Minutes" under his belt, Andy Rooney will deliver his 1,097th on Sunday's broadcast. And it will be his last as a regular contributor.
The 92-year-old Rooney will announce his departure at the end of the program, where he has been featured since 1978, CBS News announced on Tuesday. It will be preceded by a segment in which Rooney looks back on his career with "60 Minutes" correspondent Morley Safer.
I seldom watch the Sunday morning news but Andy Rooney has been a constant source of entainment on CBS for a long time. First Dan Rather and now Rooney. CBS might as well shut their doors.
