Your favorite Channel 4 anchor is back.
On Monday it was announced that “The Ron Burgundy Podcast” will be coming to iHeartRadio in early 2019 and will be co-produced by Funny Or Die. Actor/comedian Will Ferrell will be hosting the show as Burgundy, a person familiar with the podcast confirmed with TheWrap.
iHeart Radio has ordered two 12-episode seasons of the podcast, with guest names to be announced at a later date.
On Friday, the Twitter account @BurgundyPodcast hinted at the possibility of a podcast with Burgundy coming soon. The account tweeted at CNN anchor Don Lemon, saying, “It’s your good friend, Ron Burgundy. Don’t know if you heard, but I recently had my White House press credentials pulled. They accused me of eating too many hot dogs in the press break room.”
Lemon replied to the tweet, but quickly it was clear @BurgundyPodcast had another agenda.
“Don, I am laughing out loud! So about that favor: the media landscape is changing so fast and I DO NOT CARE FOR IT. That’s why I’m starting a ‘podcast!'” @BurgundyPodcast wrote on Twitter.
iHeartRadio then jumped in and replied to Burgundy by welcoming the mustached man to the podcast life.
The world last saw Burgundy in “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” as he tried to catch up to the nonstop news cycle that is the norm today. The sequel was released seven years after “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,” starring Ferrell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Steve Carell and Christina Applegate
Ferrell will next star in the upcoming comedy “Holmes & Watson” alongside frequent collaborator John C. Reilly.
