What happened to Andy Rooney on ’60 Minutes’

What happened to Andy Rooney on ’60 Minutes’

A lot of “60 Minutes” fans have missed a familiar, yet cranky face in recent weeks; that of Andy Rooney. CBS has been getting calls about the whereabouts of Rooney and his curmudgeonly commentaries, for which he has won three Emmys.

Rooney's appearances on “60 Minutes” have been rare as of late due to illness, being bumped by major news stories and sensitive topics he would rather not discuss.

"It's realistic to say he's slowing down," said Susie Bieber, Rooney’s “60 Minutes” producer, according to timesunion.com. "People call and ask why he's not on every week and I say, I don't know of anyone else who's doing what he's doing at 92."

Bieber said they will be taping a Rooney commentaries every week, without any guarantees they will air. She said that she doesn’t feel that CBS is ready to put Rooney on the sidelines just yet.
