The legendary newscaster Ron Burgundy is putting down the Scotchie Scotch Scotch for a moment and returning to the air waves with the team at IHeartMedia and it’s kind of a big f-ing deal.
“The Ron Burgundy Podcast.” The audio series will launch on the iHeartRadio Podcast Network in early 2019 and the iconic anchorman is beside himself with glee to once again grace the world with his presence.
The Ron Burgundy Podcast will be co-produced by those funny cats at Funny Or Die and will mark the return of the legendary Anchorman Ron Burgundy who has been delighting fans all over the world since the hit movie released in 2004.
Ron Burgundy has signed on for two 12-episode seasons, with season one to launch in the first quarter of 2019 and the second season expected to air mid-2019.
“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.”
Ron is still represented by his long-time agent Buzzy Chanterelle of Let’s Make Magic Entertainment. Let’s Make Magic is a local San Diego agency whose roster includes mostly stunt men, magicians and animal handlers. And let’s not forget Lance Alworth, who he represented for six months, and Chuck Muncie!
“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.”
Ron Burgundy will release an official trailer in the coming months on iHeartRadio and everywhere else podcasts are heard.
