And so the legend of Ron Burgundy continues, but this time in our fair city: New York. The second trailer for Anchorman 2 has hit the web, and among the details revealed, including marital woes, a cross-country road trip, and an RV crash, it’s clear that our men from Channel 4 News will be carrying out their newsy lives in the 1980s.
We may have to wait a few months until we can fully appreciate the gloriously outdated looks Ron and co. will don in the new film—must we bid adieu to Brian Fantana’s glorious locks and begrudgingly embrace the dreaded perm? That remains to be seen. Until then, we’re taking cues from the stylistic evolution of the anchorwomen of days past and present.
In television news, it appears, there will always be a place for shoulder pads, sensible blazers, hair-sprayed bouffants, and the elongated bob, and that might not be a bad thing. From Kirsten Dunst’s Drop Dead Gorgeous idol, Diane Sawyer [28–34], to New York’s WABC 7 (and Taxi TV’s breakout star) Sade Baderinwa [68–72], we present ten of our favorite female anchors, then and now.
And from all of us here at ITG, you stay classy…Internet?
