iHeartRadio and the Funny or Die network are launching a Will Ferrell hosted Podcast called The Ron Burgundy podcast. Yes, Will Ferrell will be playing his famed character from Anchorman, Ron Burgundy.
“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,” added iHeartPodcast Network president Conal Byrne. “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.”
