Andy Rooney Exiting '60 Minutes' Sunday

NEW YORK — CBS says commentator Andy Rooney will make his final weekly "60 Minutes" appearance on this Sunday's edition.

The 92-year-old Rooney will announce his departure in his regular essay at the end of the program, where he has been featured since 1978.

This, his 1,097th original essay for the program, will be preceded by a segment in which Rooney looks back on his career with "60 Minutes" correspondent Morley Safer, CBS said Tuesday.

Rooney began his run on "60 Minutes" in July 1978 with an essay about the reporting of automobile fatalities on the Independence Day weekend. 

He became a regular contributor that fall, delivering sometimes folksy, sometimes cranky commentaries on ordinary life.
