TV-Andy Rooney - 60 Minutes

     NEW YORK (AP) - 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.
