On Sunday, after he completes his 1,087th essay, Andy will be retiring! We’ll miss him!

Andy Rooney, 92, will formally announce his decision at the end of CBS’ 60 Minutes!

Andy began with CBS in 1949 as a writer for the show “Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts,” as well as “The Gary Moore Show” and writing for CBS News.

He started with ’60 Minutes’ from day one, beginning in 1968. Not only did he report but for the first few seasons he produced some of the segments. In July of 1978 he began speaking his mind on misleading car fatalities on the fourth of July weekend.

After his last broadcast, CBS will air a segment that will look back on Rooney’s 31 years on the show. We wish Andy a happy retirement!
