Rooney To Be Honored

…definitely not for any “60 Minutes” segment I’ve seen lately. Talk about tired and dull…

    NPC’s Silver Owls will rekindle memories of the Club’s coveted Fourth Estate Award on Thurs., Oct. 16 at a Fall Hoot honoring the long-time CBS “60 Minutes” essayist Andy Rooney.

    When Walter Cronkite received the initial Fourth Estate Award in 1973, he wanted his favorite newswriter and producer, Andy Rooney, to be a roaster, along with John Charles ( “What’s My Line”) Daly and FCC Commissioner Paul Porter.

    Rooney, the sole survivor of the trio, will recall that event and more when he becomes the latest recipient of he Order of the Owl at the October Hoot.

    The Gridiron Club’s noted pianist John Fluck will accompany Silver Owl choristers in a musical salute to Rooney.
