Hugh: Remember Ron Burgundy? He’s Back…In Podcast Form
Will Ferrell is set to reprise his role as Ron Burgundy for a new podcast. According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Ron Burgundy Podcast will launch on the iHeartRadio Podcast Network in early 2019 and has already been given a two season, 12-episode order. “Ron quite literally forced us into making this podcast with him, first calling us more than one hundred times in a single day and then proceeding to actually show up at our doorstep and physically force himself into our studios,” iHeartPodcast Network president Conal Byrne joked on Monday. “We do hope the podcast is well-received, but in the meantime, we hope by agreeing to do the announcement he will stay away.” Ferrell starred as the temperamental news man in 2004’s Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and 2013’s Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. A trailer for the podcast will be released in the coming months.
