Ron Burgandy Having A University Department Named After Him

Everything seems to be going well for Ron Burgandy at the moment, what with the release of his memoirs and an ice cream in his favourite flavour set to be soon released; Emerson College in Boston, USA is set to rename their School of Communication after him.

On December 4th, the college will change their name to the Ron Burgandy School of Communication, fear not though as this change will only last one day. As well as the name change, Burgandy himself will be at the college to give a news conference and along with attending the renaming ceremony also give the students a screening of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.

The College President, Lee Pelton, had this to say about the visit; “A visit from Ron Burgundy is a chance to engage with someone who understands the power of media, as well as hairspray, first-hand”

Interim Dean of the School of Communication added this; “Naming our school in his honor—for one entire day—compels us to honor the Ron Burgundy that’s inside all of us…to live out our dreams, in full color and matching polyester.”

See live coverage of the event on December 4th from 11.00 (EST) on their website here
