Andy Rooney, TV & Radio Journalist Highlighted the Quality of CBS News (Videos)
There’s a lot I can say about Andy Rooney. Never met the guy but we all knew that his time with us would be limited after he announced his departure from CBS News followed shortly by his surgery where his family said nothing more than he was hospitalized.
Last night Andy Rooney passed away at the age of 92. You can Google him to find out a log more than I can write about the 60 Minutes personality. And I have to catch myself because Andy Rooney was a journalist rather than a personality. Would never put this great newsman on the level of Kim Kardashian. Nothing wrong with Kim Kardashian but Andy Rooney was a journalist, a newsman as we called them back in the 80′s during my days at CBS Radio in Philadelphia.
Not a personality.
Once again there’s a lot I can say about Andy Rooney. From a personal standpoint. But his passing brings back great memories of the quality of the greatness known as CBS News. Some will miss him because of his time with 60 Minutes. I’ll remember him for many other reasons beyond just seeing him on that show.
