'Ron Burgundy' to Anchor 'SportsCenter' on Dec. 5

Ferrell and David Koechner's "Champ Kind" to Helm 6 p.m. Edition 12/03/2013 3:35 PM Eastern

 

You stay classy, Bristol.

Following his appearance on Bismarck, N.D.'s KXMB last week, Will Ferrell will bring his "Ron Burgundy" character to ESPN, where he and his Anchorman co-star David Koechner (who will be in character as Burgundy's sports reporter Champ Kind) will guest anchor the 6 p.m. SportsCenter on Thursday.

Ferrell and Koechner will join regular anchors John Anderson and Lindsay Czarniak. This marks the fourth time that celebrities will guest anchor SportsCenter, following Billy Crystal, Ken Jeong and most recently NASCAR's Jimmie Johnson.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues hits theaters Dec. 18.
