WASHINGTON -- Ron Burgundy will finally be recognized for his contributions to journalism excellence when "Anchorman: The Exhibit" opens at the Newseum in November 2013.
No word on whether the "Anchorman" exhibit will feature reams of leather-bound books and smell of rich mahogany, but Ron Burgundy's jazz flute, Channel 4 Evening News team costumes and Arturo Mendez' whip (as seen in the fight scene between rival news teams) will be included.
There's also an interactive element for budding Ron Burgundys and Veronica Corningstones:
Visitors to the exhibit also will have an opportunity to step in front of the camera and participate in an Anchorman-themed TV spot at one of the Newseum's Be a TV Reporter stations. With lead anchor Ron Burgundy providing a snappy introduction, budding reporters can find out if they have what it takes to become a member of the Channel 4 News team.
"I'm literally trapped in a glass case of emotion," Ron Burgundy said in a statement when informed he would be honored by the Newseum.
