MOVIE/BOOK TIE IN
This just in….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.” The book will be available Nov. 19, one month ahead of the film’s Dec. 20 release date. The publisher commented, “The list of legendary American broadcast news journalists is short: Edward R. Murrow, Walter Cronkite, and of course, Ron Burgundy.”
