Following in-character drop ins at a Bismarck affiliate and on ESPN and NBCSN, Will Ferrell dropped the Ron Burgundy persona for Diane Sawyer who named him person of the week on Friday. The feature even included a clip of Ferrell as a sports anchor at Santa Ana College in 1991. “You came this close to being one of us,” Sawyer joked.
