KGW News Anchor Finds Anchorman Hilarious

Written by Pat Boyle on December 18, 2013

Portland, Oregon – Anchorman 2 opens in Portland and across the country today returning fictional TV news anchor Ron Burgundy to the big screen. I wondered what real life TV news anchors think about  the way they’re portrayed in the movie.  So I talked with KGW  morning news anchor, Russ Lewis.

He says he thought the original Anchorman was hilarious and looks forward to seeing the sequel. Russ has been in the business for 24 years and says in some of the smaller markets where he’s worked, he’s seen anchors read anything and everything off the teleprompter. He’s also seen news anchors who don’t get along.

His favorite scene from the first movie was the rumble involving anchors from competing stations. Russ says he has never seen something like that happen, although he says there is a healthy competition among Portland TV stations.
