Will Ferrell is returning as Ron Burgundy to lead an all-new podcast titled ‘BurgundyPodcast’. Launching in early 2019, Ferrell has signed on for two, 12-episode seasons. The verified Twitter account ‘BurgundyPodcast’ announced the show by getting into an argument with Don Lemon.
Announcing the series with Funny or Die, Ron Burgundy released the following statement: “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. I am also broke. Therefore, I am very excited to do this podcast. It is literally saving my life. By the way, if iHeartRadio says that I harassed them into making a podcast, it is a lie!! A bald-faced lie!! 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.”
Mr. Burgundy, I gotta be honest I don’t remember ever meeting you and frankly I’m a little shocked you have White House press credentials. I know I stand for a free press and all but just not so sure you should have those credentials.

We think Ron Burgundy will have a great podcast. He is very important, and he has many leather-bound books and his apartment smells of rich mahogany.
