Andy Rooney, the longtime “60 Minutes” contributor and television news legend, has died.
He was 92.
He’d had complications from recent surgery.
Rooney stepped away from his “60 Minutes” perch last month after more than 30 years of video essays that made him one of the country’s most visible (and beloved) curmudgeons.

“It’s a sad day at ’60 Minutes’ and for everybody here at CBS News,” said CBS News chairman Jeff Fager in a statement about Rooney’s death. “It’s hard to imagine not having Andy around. He loved his life and he lived it on his own terms. We will miss him very much.”
