Barry & Jason Games and Entertainment has announced a nationwide challenge to all broadcasters to take its "Anchorman" challenge, with proceeds to benefit The National Brain Tumor Society and honor the late WSB-TV's Jovita Moore, news anchor, WSB-TV.  

Barry & Jason Games are the makers of "Anchorman: The Game," the officially-licensed board game based on the 2004 film starring Will Ferrell. 

"Each year, Barry & Jason Games joins forces with a charity to connect our love for games with a good cause," says Jason Lautenschlager, co-founder, Barry & Jason Games . "With our new 'Anchorman' game, we can provide a unique incentive to add to our donation to The National Brain Tumor Society in honor of Jovita's brave fight with brain cancer." 

The "Anchorman" Charity Challenge asks professional broadcasters in TV, radio, podcast and YouTube hosts to read a script from Barry & Jason's Anchorman: The Game. Just like Ferrell's Ron Burgundy character, the broadcaster has to read the given script aloud, no matter how strange or inappropriate, without pause or embarrassment. 

Each time a broadcaster uploads a video clip to social media tagging @barryandjason and uses hashtags #AnchormanChallenge or #AnchormanChallengeforJovita, until Dec. 31, Barry & Jason Games and Entertainment will donate $50 to the National Brain Tumor Society. Broadcasters are also encouraged to tag a colleague to challenge them as well. 

Broadcasters who want to participate in the challenge can reach out through email at [email protected] or [email protected] for a script and a game.
