Ron Burgundy to Write Memoir

Classy! Everyone’s favorite fictional San Diego newsman, Ron Burgundy, will be writing a memoir to coincide with the release of his new film, Anchorman 2: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. “I don’t know if it’s the greatest autobiography ever written,” Burgundy (aka actor Will Ferrell) said. “I’m too close to the work.” Publishing house Crown Archetype, an imprint of Random House’s Crown Publishing Group, released an extremely serious press release about the upcoming memoir, saying the book will be available Nov. 19, one month ahead of the film’s Dec. 20 release date. "The list of legendary American broadcast news journalists is short: Edward R. Murrow, Walter Cronkite, and of course, Ron Burgundy,” says Crown editor-in-chief Mauro DiPreta.
