Celeb: Will Ferrell hosts real newscast as Anchorman Ron Burgundy on KXMB TV
Will Ferrell presented a real news bulletin as his Anchorman character Ron Burgundy, as he continues to promote Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. He co-anchored the KXMB news in Bismarck, North Dakota, with real presenter Amber Schatz for the entire half-hour broadcast. Dressed in his trademark burgundy blazer with a full, 1970s-inspired moustache and hair, Burgundy bantered with his co-host as well as the weatherman, and read stories ranging from holiday shopping to trash can fires. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues will be released in the United States and United Kingdom on December 18. Report by Mark Morris.
