The End of an Era

Andy Rooney has announced his retirement from CBS' news magazine "60 Minutes."

Rooney, 92, joined CBS in 1949 and said in an interview in 2009 that he intends to stay on "60 Minutes" until he dies. Only now, in a more "sporadic" role.

A statement from CBS says Rooney will discuss this on Sunday's broadcast. Sunday will mark his 1,097th essay - a feature he started in 1978.

No word on a replacement, or if the segment will even continue.
