You stay classy, Emerson College, and maybe pour a glass of scotch.
Legendary (fictional) TV anchorman Ron Burgundy is coming to the Boston school on Dec. 4 and, in his honor, the college is renaming its communication school. Granted, the Ron Burgundy School of Communication will be in business only one day, but it's what Burgundy might call kind of a big deal.
"A visit from Ron Burgundy is a chance to engage with someone who understands the power of media, as well as hairspray, first-hand," Emerson College President Lee Pelton said in a statement.
Ferrell's Burgundy character plans to use the day-long Emerson visit to "share his path to journalism greatness," according to the statement.
Best of all, perhaps this will finally pave the way for the "Derek Zoolander Center for Kids Who Can't Read Good and Who Wanna Learn to Do Other Stuff Good Too."
