RIP, Andy Rooney
Few people have the pleasure of loving their job so much, they swear to do it until the day that they die, but 60 Minutes commentator, Andy Rooney came close when he passed away last night at the age of 92, only a month after his final broadcast.
Since his first appearance on the show on July 2, 1978, Rooney has been one of the few familiar faces on American television left after more than thirty years, delivering his often grouchy observations that could hit a common nerve in the country’s psyche or the one that sparked controversy.
A writer and producer as well as a television commentator, Rooney counted among his honors four Emmys, a Peabody Award, and a Writers Guild of America Award for various work throughout a career that humbly began in high school at the Albany Knickerbocker News and ended as one of the country’s most beloved commentators.
