Ron Burgundy is kind of a big deal…people know him. Well, now people will be able to hear his wise-cracking commentary on a whole new medium as Will Ferrel is bringing his iconic character back to life with a new podcast titled The Ron Burgundy Podcast!

[row]“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,” Burgundy said in an “official” statement. [/row]

According to Deadlinethe podcast will launch on iHeart Radio sometime in early 2019 and has received a two-season 12-episode order. While it hasn’t been officially confirmed, listeners should probably be on the lookout for some familiar faces (voices?) making some special guest appearances.

[row]“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,” said Conal Byrne, iHeartPodcast Network President.[/row]

Burgundy’s statement continued:

[row]“By the way, if iHeartRadio says that I harassed them into making a podcast, it is a lie!! A boldface 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.”[/row]
