NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) Legendary newscaster Ron Burgundy and iHeartRadio have announced “The Ron Burgundy Podcast,” which is expected to launch on the iHeartRadio Podcast Network early next year and, yes, yes, we know: it’s kind of a big deal.
The podcast is co-produced by Funny Or Die and will “mark the return of the legendary anchorman himself.” Burgundy (cough, Will Ferrell) has signed on for two 12-episode seasons with season one to launch in the first quarter of 2019 and the second expected to air midyear.
“Listen, I don’t know what a podcast is, but I currently have a lot of time on my hands and a lot to talk about,” said Ron Burgundy, host of “The Ron Burgundy Podcast.” “I am also broke. Therefore, I am very excited to do this podcast. It is literally saving my life.”
“To be honest, we don’t want to do this podcast and we just want to get this announcement over with as soon as possible,” said Conal Byrne, President of the iHeartPodcast Network. “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. We do hope the podcast is well-received, but in the meantime, we hope by agreeing to do the announcement he will stay away.”
“By the way, if iHeartRadio says that I harassed them into making a podcast, it is a lie!! A boldface lie!!” said Burgundy. “Did I call them one hundred times in one day? Yes! But that’s called persistence! I have filed suit against iHeartRadio for these salacious claims. I will be representing myself legally, since I currently do not have enough money to hire an attorney.”
Burgundy will release an official trailer in the coming months on iHeartRadio and everywhere else podcasts are heard.
