Anchorman‘s Ron Burgundy is primed to open up from his glass case of emotion in an upcoming tell-all memoir entitled Let Me Off at the Top!: My Classy Life and Other Musings. In an agreement with Random House’s Crown Archetype, the legendary Action 4 News Team anchor — and EW cover star — is to share never-been-told tales from his sure-to-be classy childhood and early years in the TV journalism business. Also included are well-learned lessons on a variety of topics as well as anecdotes from his pursuits of career, friendship, and women.

The San Diego broadcast journalist and ladies’ man, played by Will Ferrell, is the central character from the Anchorman film series. Released in 2004, Anchorman is to follow-up with a sequel, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, this December, which features Ferrell reprising his role as the jazz flute playing broadcast news man.

In a press release, Burgundy stated, “I don’t know if it’s the greatest autobiography ever written. I’m too close to the work.” He also added, “I will tell you this much: the first time I sat down and read this thing…I cried like a goddamn baby, and you can take that to the bank!”

Let Me Off at the Top! hits physical and digital shelves Nov. 19. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues premieres Dec. 20.
