Viewers who stuck around for the local news on KX, after the Alabama vs. Auburn game, were treated to a very special surprise.

Legendary newscaster Ron Burgundy, also known as Will Ferrell, was the special guest co-host of the evening news on KX. Burgundy actually co-hosted the full thirty minutes, much to the surprise of many KX viewers, including myself.

According to KX's Tom Gerhardt, Paramount Pictures was looking for a local newscast to have Burgundy co-host and KX managed to make it work.
