In what's sure to include an extensive chapter on scotch, Ron Burgundy has announced that he will be publishing a memoir titled "Let Me Off at the Top! My Classy Life and Other Musings."
The fictional San Diego news broadcaster, portrayed by comedian Will Ferrell in the 2004 comedy "Anchorman" and upcoming "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues," will share with readers everything from his childhood to what it's like to be a top news anchor and jazz flute expert.
Crown Publishing Group adds that Burgundy will "offer a rare glimpse behind the camera into the real life of a man many consider to be our greatest living news anchor. In his own words, he will share personal anecdotes about the women in his life, about his dog, Baxter, and his legendary news team."
As for the man himself, he's not shy about praising the finished product.
“I don’t know if it’s the greatest autobiography ever written. I’m too close to the work,” Burgundy said, adding, “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!”
The book is due to be published on Nov. 19, only a month before "Anchorman 2" hits theaters on Dec. 20. Check out a trailer for the film below.
