CBS: Andy Rooney hospitalized in serious condition

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) — CBS says longtime "60 Minutes" essayist Andy Rooney is in the hospital after developing serious complications following minor surgery last week.

The network said Tuesday that Rooney's condition is stable. At the family's request, CBS is releasing no other details about his health status or where Rooney is hospitalized.

Rooney is 92, and only three weeks ago delivered what he said would be his last regular essay on the CBS newsmagazine after doing it since 1978.

The veteran television personality had a long career as a writer that predated his time as a television personality.
