BOSTON (November 18, 2013) Emerson College in Boston is renaming its communication school the Ron Burgundy School of Communication for one day only on Dec. 4 to honor the fictitious television anchorman.
Actor Will Ferrell, in character, is scheduled to share his path to journalism greatness with students and the visit will include a news conference, the renaming ceremony and a screening of "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues."
Ferrell will introduce the movie.
College President Lee Pelton says Burgundy "understands the power of media, as well as hairspray, firsthand."
Burgundy, known for telling people he's "kind of a big deal," says he hopes to let students know how hard it is to make it to the top, in his words, "especially if you don't have good hair."
