RIP: Andy Rooney 1919 – 2011

Andy Rooney, one of the most famous TV personalities have passed away. He is most famous as one of the commentators for the CBS news magazine, “60 Minutes”. He was commentator from 1978, all the way to 2011. He just retired from “60 Minutes”, not too long ago.

He is one of those guys that you either love or hate. He have always been controversial for years, but no matter what you think of him, he was a legend and an icon in the news business. He died five weeks after his last appearance on, “60 Minutes”. He was 92, years old.

Edit to add: On a side note, I didn’t know that Andy Rooney was actually from here, the Capital District area. I just read that he was born in Albany, N.Y.
