'Anchorman' star Ron Burgundy to release tell-all autobiography

'Let Me Off At The Top!: My Classy Life And Other Musings' will be published on November 19

Ron Burgundy, the legendary newsreader from the Anchorman movies, is to release his tell-all autobiography this autumn.

His memoir, titled Let Me Off At The Top!: My Classy Life And Other Musings, will be published in the UK and US on November 19 in both print and digital editions.

"I don't know if it's the greatest autobiography ever written. I'm too close to the work," Burgundy said in a press release. "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."

Meanwhile, the book's UK publisher, Jack Fogg of Century, praised Burgundy for inspiring a generation of British broadcasters. "Burgundy’s influence on news reading is evident in the work of such legends as Richard Baker, Moira Stuart, Brian Henderson, and the early years of Jeremy Paxman," Fogg said.

"Let Me Off At The Top! will put an end to the many rumours and debates surrounding Ron and reveal the inner workings of a legendary broadcaster. His international fans will have themselves a book for the ages."

A month after he releases his autobiography, Burgundy will be seen in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, which opens in UK cinemas on December 20. Scroll down and click 'play' to watch the film's trailer.
