Long before he ruined the reputation of ESPN, Ron Burgundy was both idolized and justifiably feared by CNN anchors. Wolf Blitzer, Anderson Cooper and Chris Cuomo spoke with Funny or Die about the legendary anchorman.

Set in the 1980s, Anchorman 2 sees Ron Burgundy and the rest of the San Diego news team move to New York City to work at a 24-hour news network. Also Brick Tamland finally finds his soulmate (and it’s not a lamp).
