As Announced During His Historic Late-Night Show Appearances Thursday Evening
“The Ron Burgundy Podcast,” Co-Produced by iHeartRadio and Funny Or Die, Kicks off Season 2 Today with Guest Sen. Kamala Harris
NEW YORK– August 9, 2019 – Legendary news/podcaster Ron Burgundy and iHeartRadio, the No. 1 commercial podcast publisher globally, today launched season two of arguably the best podcast ever, “The Ron Burgundy Podcast,” as announced during his historic late-night show appearances Thursday evening. The premiere episode of season two will debut today with democratic presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris. “The Ron Burgundy Podcast” is an iHeartRadio Original Podcast co-produced with Funny Or Die.
Season one of “The Ron Burgundy Podcast” has attracted a wide fan-base of Ron-obsessed followers since its initial launch in December 2018. Due to Ron’s worldly experience and immense knowledge of pop culture, his show has tackled every podcast genre imaginable in its 12 episodes and has hosted big-name pop culture personalities such as Peter Dinklage, RuPauland Deepak Chopra.
“My podcast, quite simply, can only be described as a raging success,” said Burgundy. “I’ll admit – when I first started in this rodeo, it was my first rodeo, and I had no idea what a podcast even was. But through diligent research and persistence, I quickly climbed my way up to the top. And now, it is not my first rodeo. It is now, literally, my second rodeo. And word on the street is that I am already the best rodeo rider that has ever lived… and podcaster, too. This is a fact, folks.”
Season two of the podcast will be even more brilliant than season one. In addition to Kamala Harris, Burgundy will sit down with other cultural forces of nature including actress Brooke Shields, historian and political commentator Doris Kearns Goodwin, feminist activist Gloria Steinem and more.
“When Ron first started trying to force us to make this podcast with him, we resisted, as it’s clear he’s an unhinged man,” said Conal Byrne, President of the iHeartPodcast Network. “However, people are actually listening. I have no idea why. Doubly baffling, and for reasons beyond my grasp, they actually want more. Seriously? We have to go through this whole thing again? Fine. Here. Season two. Whatever.”
“The Ron Burgundy Podcast” is available now on iHeartRadio and everywhere else podcasts are heard. Excerpts of the podcast will also be distributed across iHeartRadio broadcast radio stations and via social media channels. Presenting sponsors of the second season of “The Ron Burgundy Podcast” include Fair, NBC and Coors Light.
