Ron Burgundy Won’t Be Hosting SportsCenter After All

We've just been handed an urgent and horrifying news story: Ron Burgundy is no longer hosting ESPN's SportsCenter tonight. Last night, ESPN's director of communications David Scott tweeted, "Ron Burgundy's scheduled Thurs. appearance on @SportsCenter has been cancelled in light of the potential implications of any news from the State Attorney's press conference in Fla." He is alluding to the case of star Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, who was accused of sexual assault about a year ago; today, it will be announced whether charges will be filed against him. According to Scott, there is currently no reschedule date. There's no word if they will run Ron's full pretaped interview with Peyton Manning, so until then, here's an excerpt.
