NEW YORK, Oct. 3 (UPI) -- Andy Rooney has appeared for the last time as a regular contributor to the U.S. newsmagazine program "60 Minutes."

CBS confirmed last week Rooney, 92, was retiring from the show after more than 1,000 broadcasts over more than three decades.

"This is a moment I have dreaded. I wish I could do this forever," The Hollywood Reporter quoted Rooney as saying in his final "A Few Minutes with Andy Rooney" segment Sunday.

"When I went on television it was as a writer," Rooney said. "I don't think of myself as a television personality. I'm a writer who reads what he's written."
