Ron Burgundy is back…but he’s not bringing his blow-dried pomposity to the big screen in another Anchorman movie. Like pretty much everyone else, San Diego’s most famous fictional TV news anchor is launching a podcast. 

In early 2019, The Ron Burgundy Podcast debuts on the iHeartRadio Podcast Network, and it’s already set for two seasons with 12 episodes each.

The show will be co-produced by iHeart Radio and Funny or Die, the company founded by Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Michael Kvamme, and Chris Henchy.

“Therefore, I am very excited to do this podcast. It is literally saving my life.”
