Keeping it classy, Will Ferrell reprises his role as Ron Burgundy for a new podcast from iHeartRadio and Funny or Die.
Revealed back in December, The anchorman is back with a new endeavour in 2019. Ron Burgundy is entering the world of podcasting with a new hard hitting show from iHeartRadio.
Aptly titled, ‘The Ron Burgundy podcast’ will definitely be getting to the bottom of the hottest topics. There’s absolutely no way it could descend into farce, and to prove it here’s a trailer showcasing what to expect.
‘Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy’ became a comedy phenomenon in 2004. Will Ferrell portrays the calamitous news anchor Ron Burgundy. The role arguably became the actor’s most recognisable.
That film spawned an equally well received sequel in 2013 where we found Burgundy and his close knit team – a relic of a bygone era – struggling to adapt to the modern world of newscasting where women are considered equals.
Famously, the character was based on an actual newscaster, Mort Crim, working out of Philadelphia in the seventies.
‘The Ron Burgundy Podcast’ begins on iHeartRadio on February 7th. The show is a joint venture between iHeartRadio and Funny or Die who are commissioned for a twelve episode, two season order.
