Andy Rooney Remembers Joe Wershba

At the end of the special second hour of “60 Minutes” last night, Andy Rooney paid tribute to Joe Wershba, a “great and much-loved producer” for the show in its first 20 years. Wershba died May 14. He was 90.

“Television critics and competing broadcasters from other networks have searched for the secret of the success of ’60 Minutes’ … the fact is, ’60 Minutes’ has been as good, substantial and as successful as it is because it has some great producers, and Joe Wershba was the most-loved of them all.”
