He enjoys his run at the top, and has for the last five years. And his news team is equally as good as he is. Professional jock and former professional baseball player Champ Kind handles the sports, the curiously dim witted Brick Tamland - who's a few channels short of a cable subscription - handles the weather, and ladies' man Brian Fantana - whose collection of fine scents would be in the Guinness Book Of Records - handles the on-field reporting.

The Malibu brand rum was introduced only in 1980.

The colognes and lotions in the Sex Panther cologne scene is from the 2000s and not the 1970s.

Several of the typefaces used were not designed at the time the movie was set. At 5m in, the vector version of the font Geneva (introduced in 1991) is used for the word "Exclusive!". At 70m in, the vector version of the font Chicago (also from 1991) is used at the end of the teleprompter reel.

The lint roller that is used to clean off the back of Ron's blazer during the opening credits was only patented in 1983. Later than the time frame the actual movie is set in.

Ron sprays himself with pepper-spray during his fight with Veronica in the office. Pepper-spray wasn't introduced until the 1980s.

The helicopter that dropped off Ron Burgundy in the opening scene wasn't built until 1981 as it bore the number "N".

While talking to Baxter, the poition of Ron's coat changes.

There is a change in the position of the crowd during Veronica and Ron's fight scene.

The positions of the pencils are neatly arranged in the shot where Ed is talking about diversity. In the next shot they are all scattered.

Brian Fantana's initial action suggest that he was to bang his right fist on Ed's desk but in the long shot he bangs his left hand.
