I'm Ron Burgundy?

If I'm going to be going on camera I'm going to need a new name and a signoff, no? As for the name, the Significant Other suggested while driving me to work today that I should go with "Cinnamon Surewood," which made me realize that in my contract negotiations I'm going to have to demand a towncar and a driver.

Name ideas to get you brainstorming:
Tweedy Fluffington
Arianna Dewberry

Possible signoffs:
"Thanks for stopping by, nation."
"You stay classy, nation."
"Go **** yourself, nation."
"And that's the way it is, nation."
"How about you do another take. I'll be in the bar."

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go practice my non-regional diction.

Lois Pifferfield?
Patricia Worthington-Somerset?

"Sit and spin, nation."

The classic finger to the ear, “This just in (pause) OH DEAR SWEET JESUS…..” and then run off camera.

Or “Welcome to the *** bitch!”

O M G thats my favorite line of all time...I am Ron Burgundy?

I think you should just go with the original classic:

Tits McGee.

Wow, what an opportunity to reinvent yourself!

While your suggestions are good, how about a combo of the two? Arianna Fluffington. Few could pull that off as you could.

Chesty LeRue?

Lez Bow...?

DAMMIT! Who put a question mark on the teleprompter?

I'm Susan Sheffieldson with all the news not fit for print.

(I used to be a radio newsreader - go figure.)

Rochelle Rochelle

Julia J. Pantsuit

Melba Toast

LeeRoy Higginbotham (yeah, I don't know...but a woman named "LeeRoy" would be unforgettable, right?)

Well, I've considered your suggestions carefully and I think we have a winner, courtesy of the S.O. and I-66: Cinnamon Roundbottom. It is both compelling and rich. And highly, highly accurate.

The signoff winner is my very own brother, with his finger-to-the-earpiece/"Oh sweet Jesus!" set fleeing approach.

You have all played a vital role in creating a quality television product that will be viewed by literally tens of people. Well done. Go get yourself a nice glass of scotch. And some cheese.

Excellent choices.

Admirable choices, all, but what about going back to your Simpsons' roots? How about

Ineeda Mantahugginkis

(Although I admit it doesn't have the same zip as Cinnamon Roundbottom. And no, the latter is NOT true. You should have seen me in ski bibs this weekend. I was like the Sta-Puff Marshmallow Man incarnate, except if he were licorice flavored.)

SS-Excellent suggestion!
See, if you'd snapped up the $14 bargain pants they would have looked like gangbusters. ;-)
