His final appearance will also feature a special segment looking back on his career.

"There's nobody like Andy and there never will be. He'll hate hearing this, but he's an American original," Jeff Fager, chairman of CBS News and the executive producer of 60 Minutes, said. "His contributions to 60 Minutes are immeasurable; he's also a great friend.
