Here's everything you need to know about the Anchorman's show and when it's set to be released…

When is the Ron Burgundy podcast launching?

The Ron Burgundy podcast is set to air in early 2019 on iHeart radio.

The show will run for two 12 episode seasons with the second expected in mid 2019.

Announcing the news, Burgundy said: "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."

How did Ron Burgundy get his own podcast?

President of the iHeart network Conal Byrne claimed that Burgundy "quite literally forced" them into making the podcast.

Burgundy hit back at these claims saying: "By the way, if iHeartRadio says that I harassed them into making a podcast, it is a lie!! A boldface lie," he said.

"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."
