The greatest news anchor of all time is soon to become a published author. Thats right, Ron Burgundy is writing a book, and its a memoir. Upon the release of the sequel Anchorman: The Legend Continues, Burgundy's self written history, titled Let Me Off at the Top! My Classy Life and Other Musings, will simultaneously be blessed upon the masses. And this ain't a joke, the book will be published by the very real Crown Archetype, a branch of Random House's Crown Publishing Group.
What will the book retell? Why the fantastic misadventures of Ron Burgundy of course. Never before seen (or read in this case) stories of Ron Burgundy's childhood will be told, his many romantic escapades, and many a page devoted to the loveable Baxter. Expect no punches pulled, as all stories will be told in the words of the legendary Channel 4 news anchor.
During a press release for the soon-to-be bestseller, Burgundy has this to say: "I don't know if it's the greatest autobiography ever written. I'm too close to the work.I will tell you this much: the first time I sat down and read this thing...I cried like a goddamn baby, and you can take that to the bank!" More poetic words were never spoken.
For those clamoring for a copy, the book will be available online and in print on November 19th. Hopefully it will tide you over until the release of the cinematic epic Anchorman: The Legend Continues on December 20th. Here's the trailer to keep you classy until then.
