How the Evening Newscasts Reported Andy Rooney’s ’60 Minutes’ Sign-off

The three evening newscasts reported today’s news that Andy Rooney would be signing off from “60 Minutes” this Sunday.

ABC’s Diane Sawyer, a former “60 Minutes” correspondent said, “A salute from an old pal over here, Andy, to you.” Brian Williams on NBC News reported the story around the same time — :22 minutes into the newscast — with with Rooney-esque, “Did you ever notice how some people become more than just television personalities, and instead become more like guests in our homes?” CBS’s Scott Pelley voiced a show-closing package on Rooney’s departure with the tease: “That last commentary comes this Sunday on ’60 minutes’ at the end of a broadcast that features a story about Andy’s life and times reported by Morley Safer. We always save the best for last.”
