Andy Rooney is going to make his last appearance on ’60 Minutes’ on October 2nd, Sunday. CBS News has announced that the 92-year-old Andy will announce his retirement as a regular contributor at the end of October 2nd broadcast and the essay will be preceded by a segment in which Rooney looks back on his career in an interview with Morley Safer.

Jeff Fager, the chairman of CBS New and Executive producer of the show said that it is harder for Rooney to do it every week but he will always have the ability to speak his mind on ’60 Minutes’ when the urge hits him. Jeff said that there is nobody like Andy and there never will be. Few pals close to Rooney said that his move is not being characterized in terms of a formal retirement because of the honoured place he has occupied on the show.

However, it is unlikely that Rooney makes any appearances in the future if there is any. A year ago, the honouree of 2003 Emmy’s Lifetime Achievement Award has said that he will work until he drops. On account of the replacement of Rooney, one of the spokesperson has said that neither the executives nor the commentator would talk further about the matter until he delivers his final words on Sunday broadcast.

Andy Rooney has spoken though his mind on ’60 Minutes’ since 1978 in a segment entitled ‘A Few Minutes with Andy Rooney’. During 1990, Andy was suspended by CBS for three months after he was quoted making an unfavourable gay remark.
