Ron Burgundy will host SportsCenter in December

Ladies and gentlemen, can I please have your attention? I've just been handed an urgent and horrifying news story. I need all of you to stop what you're doing and listen...

Ron Burgundy will host SportsCenter on Demeber 5th.

The person said that the details have not been finalized, but it is unlikely that Ferrell will break from his Ron Burgundy character. Ferrell recently appeared in character on TBS’ “Conan” to promote Burgundy’s new book, and to insult the Dodge Durango — the very truck that the 1970s journalist has been hawking in 30-second increments on TV.

The stunt is meant to help convince you to go see Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, which is slated to open in theaters on December 20th. [The Wrap]
