Andy Rooney Returns to ’60 Minutes’ Next Week

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.
