Emerson College to Name School After Ron Burgundy

School-Graduation2
BOSTON (AP) — It’s kind of a big deal that Emerson College is changing the name of its school of communication.

The Boston school will rename the school — for one day only — the Ron Burgundy School of Communication on Dec. 4 to honor the legendary television anchorman.

Actor Will Ferrell, in character, is scheduled to share his path to journalism greatness with students during the visit, which will include a news conference, the renaming ceremony, and a screening of “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.” Ferrell, as himself, will introduce the movie.

President Lee Pelton says Burgundy “understands the power of media, as well as hairspray, firsthand.”

Burgundy says he hopes to let students know how hard it is to make it to the top, “especially if you don’t have good hair.”
