Andy Rooney Dies

Originally posted 11/05/2011 07:30AM

Andy Rooney, the wry observer of current events for 33 years on 60 Minutes, died Friday night in a New York City hospital, CBS News reports.

The TV journalist was 92 and had undergone minor surgery during the third week of October, only to suffer what were termed "serious complications."

Rooney, a widower since 2004, is survived by his four children.

A mere two weeks before his hospitalization, on Oct. 2, Rooney signed off a final time from the CBS Sunday-night weekly newsmagazine that made him a household name – thanks to 1,097 essays on topics ranging from religion to his messy office.

After 33 years and 1,097 essays, Andy Rooney signed off 60 Minutes for the last time Sunday night with a simple message to his loyal viewers who have tuned in week after week to listen to his words of wisdom.

If you see him out and about, just let him be. "Please, just let me eat my dinner," the veteran TV personality, 92, said as he signed off, as he discussed the setbacks of the fame he acquired on the show.

CBS announced last week that Rooney was retiring from the news-magazine program, where he has read his self-penned essays on-camera since 1978.

"I wish I could do this forever," he said during Sunday's final essay. "I can't, though."

Andy Rooney Retiring from 60 Minutes

Originally posted 09/28/2011 08:15AM

Andy Rooney, whose wry and acerbic essays about the foibles of everyday life have been a mainstay on 60 Minutes since 1978, will retire from the CBS news-magazine program this Sunday after his 1,097th original essay.

"There's nobody like Andy, and there never will be. He'll hate hearing this, but he's an American original," Jeff Fager, the executive producer of 60 Minutes, told CBS News. "His contributions to 60 Minutes are immeasurable; he's also a great friend. It's harder for him to do it every week, but he will always have the ability to speak his mind on 60 Minutes when the urge hits him."

Rooney, 92, will look back on his career in an interview with Morley Safer during Sunday's program, then announce his retirement in his essay.
