The finest newsman of all time, Ron Burgundy, sure has been making the rounds a lot lately in advance of the release of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, in cinemas Wednesday, December 18th. He’s shown up on local news, sporting events, and even late night programs in Ireland of all places. But, this week, he and his cowboy-hatted cohort Champ Kind will be guest hosting ESPN’s flagship program, SportsCenter, this Thursday at 6:00 pm ET. As a bit of a teaser, here’s a brief look at Burgundy’s interview with Denver Broncos quarterback and multiple-MVP Peyton Manning. The two have a lot to say to each other, surprisingly. Go Broncos. (Editor’s Note: No.)
Tune into ESPN this Thursday for the rest of the interview as well as all the sports news you could want from two of San Diego’s finest newsmen. I imagine “Whammy!” will be shouted a few times. UPDATE: Due to the press conference scheduled for Thursday in Florida regarding the Jameis Winston investigation and its possible impact on the news content on Thursday’s SportsCenter, ESPN has canceled the appearance.
