With the “Anchorman 2″ release drawing closer, the search is on for the next Ron Burgundy. EPIX and Paramount Pictures are holding a contest this month to find the next “Anchorman” — and the winner will get to anchor EPIX’s red carpet coverage of the movie’s New York City premiere.
Submissions will be accepted in one of two ways: via a 15 second Instagram video uploaded with the hashtag #IAmRonBurgundy, or by visiting one of the local promotion spots taking place in one of nine cities around the country. One finalist will be chosen from the Instagram submissions and nine more will be selected from the in-person auditions, with local anchors in each market making the final picks.
