If you watched the season premiere of “60 Minutes” last night you may have noticed the absence of Andy Rooney. Rooney, 92, has slowed down a bit since the Spring.
Rooney joined CBS News in 1949 and has been giving end-of-show commentary on “60 Minutes” since 1978. CBS tells us he has a segment on next Sunday’s “60 Minutes.”
Journalism is all in the family for the Rooneys. Son Brian Rooney continues as a freelance correspondent for ABC News, daughter Emily Rooney hosts shows on WGBH TV and radio in Boston and grandson Justin Fishel is the Pentagon producer for Fox News.
