Ron Burgundy To Publish Autobiography 'Let Me Off At The Top!'
It'll come leather bound and will smell of rich magohany (probably)

Anything his English counterpart Alan Partridge can do, Ron Burgundy can do with more capital letters. The world-reknowned (albeit fictional) news anchor is publishing his own autobiography, dubbed 'LET ME OFF AT THE TOP!: My Classy Life and Other Musings', and it's out in print and digital formats on November 19, a month before the release of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues on December 20.

Most book publishing press releases are dull affairs, but when Ron is involved, things get a little more extravagant, as this choice quote below demonstrates:

"Ron Burgundy is known to all as the lead anchorman of San Diego’s award-winning Action 4 News Team and anchor of the first 24-hour news channel, GNN (Global News Network), but few know the real man behind the news desk. In 'LET ME OFF AT THE TOP!' he will share never-before-told stories of his childhood and the events that led him to choose a career in the news business.

"He 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. Along the way, he’ll also give sage advice on a variety of topics that matter most to him. The long wait is over. Ron Burgundy pulls no punches in this widely anticipated, fully authorized tell-all autobiography."

And what about Ron himself? What does he have to say about it all?

“I don’t know if it’s the greatest autobiography ever written. I’m too close to the work,” Burgundy said. “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!”

And on the topic of Ron Burgundy, here's an advert from Help For Heroes' new book, Sovereign Of Tomorrow, which reveals the broadcasting legend's love of big, big, big chairs. Or perhaps more accurately thrones.

As previously mentioned, Let Me Off At The Top is out on November 19, and Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues hits cinemas on December 20.
