Great Odin’s Raven! Ron Burgundy, San Diego’s legendary newscaster, announced Monday “The Ron Burgundy Podcast” on the @BurgundyPodcast Twitter handle, where the legendary anchorman trolled CNN’s Don Lemon.
Hello, @donlemon! It’s your good friend, Ron Burgundy. Don’t know if you heard, but I recently had my White House press credentials pulled. They accused me of eating too many hot dogs in the press break room.

Co-produced by Funny Or Die, the 12-episode audio series will launch on the iHeart Podcast Network in early 2019 and the iconic anchorman couldn’t be more elated.
“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,” said Burgundy. “I am also broke. Therefore, I am very excited to do this podcast. It is literally saving my life.”
Conal Byrne, President of the iHeart Podcast Network, had this to say about the collaboration: “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.”
Ron is still represented by his long-time agent Buzzy Chanterelle of Let’s Make Magic Entertainment. Let’s Make Magic is a local San Diego agency whose roster includes mostly stunt men, magicians and animal handlers. And let’s not forget former San Diego Chargers Lance Alworth, who he represented for six months, and Chuck Muncie!
“By the way, if iHeart says that I harassed them into making a podcast, it is a lie!! A boldface lie!!” said Burgundy. “Did I call them one hundred times in one day? Yes! But that’s called persistence! I have filed suit against iHeart for these salacious claims. I will be representing myself legally, since I currently do not have enough money to hire an attorney.”
Burgundy will release an official podcast trailer in the coming months.
