CBS stays mum on newsman's condition

Just weeks after retiring from the regular spot on ”60 Minutes” he’d occupied for more than 30 years, 92-year-old CBS newsman Andy Rooney has been hospitalized following complications from surgery.

On Tuesday, CBS News Radio’s White House correspondent Mark Knoller tweeted that ”Andy Rooney underwent minor surgery last week and suffered serious complications. He remains hospitalized.” Knoller told followers that Rooney’s condition was stable, but that CBS, ”at request of Rooney Family is making no other disclosures.”

Rooney’s final ”60 Minutes” broadcast was Oct 2.
