Will Ferrell is bringing back Ron Burgundy for a new podcast

Paul Moore

By the beard of Zeus!

As the narrator in Anchorman told us: “Bob Dylan once wrote, ‘The times, they are a-changing’. Ron Burgundy had never heard that song,” and it’s very likely he has no idea what the hell a podcast is too.

Truth be told, it’s an old, old wooden ship that was used during the Civil War era.

One thing Burgundy does know though – aside from having a voice that could make a wolverine purr and suits so fine they made Sinatra look like a hobo – is how to read the news and given the fact that he’s the finest goddamn journalist on the planet, we think that Ron is perfect for this new medium.

Oh yes, you don’t have to live in a whale’s vagina San Diego to hear Ron’s dulcet tones because Will Ferrell is launching a new podcast that’s appropriately titled The Ron Burgundy Podcast.

The podcast is set to launch on the iHeartRadio Podcast Network and will be available for your listening pleasure in early 2019. It will be co-produced by Funny or Die and iHeartRadio. The show has been given a two-season 12-episode order.

In terms of the topics that will be up for discussion, we’re expecting to hear riveting news stories featuring pandas, Brian Fantana’s sex life, Brick Tamland’s weather reports, the merits of Sex Panther over all other colognes, and Champ Kind will be, well, he’s probably still selling bats chicken of the cave to his customers.

Burgundy is back!

After all, he is kind of a big deal.
