The first time I saw “Anchorman”, I said there was no way men acted like Ron Burgundy in the 70s.

Amusingly, every time I see "Anchorman," I'm convinced I WORKED with Ron Burgundy at some point...

I was always fond of Roger Ebert's review of that movie, where he admits that Burgundy reminded him of an ex-co-worker. (Ebert named a name in his autobiography, Ron Hunter.)

Ron Hunter was...interesting. Look him up on YouTube. He had a presence all his own, and was much ballyhooed when WMAQ brought him to Chicago. I don't know if he was exactly dim, but he wasn't Cronkite either. There's also a Current Affair piece on the downhill side of his career. Maury Povich noted they'd been colleagues.
