As we gear up for Anchorman 2, Will Ferrell (amongst tons of other promo) has confessed his inspiration for the beloved Ron Burgundy character and the best part is… this guy used to work in Philly!
In an interview in the 90s, Mort Crim admitted that he was a “typical, shovanist, news anchor from the 70s” with such confidence. Ferrell saw this clip and had to bring this character to life on the big screen. Thus, Anchorman was born!
Can’t wait to check out Anchorman 2 in theaters December 18th!
Check out this clip of Crim and his old co-host Jessica Savitch (both formerly of KYW here in Philadelphia!) chatting it up on the air.
