Ron Burgundy is Getting His Own Podcast That’ll Make All the Wolverine’s Purr

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!

“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.

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.

“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.

Burgundy’s statement continued:

“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.”
