Anchorman‘s Ron Burgundy may be a broadcast news legend, but he’s also had his fair share of on-air meltdowns. Still, it’s Ron’s subtle mix of sexist charm and drunken bravado that has influenced so many anchors and reporters over the years. So now, with the announcement of the long-awaited Anchorman sequel, let’s take a look at the broadcast professionals who have taken up his twisted mantle at the cost of their very souls.
