Viewers of KXNews that serves central and western North Dakota received quite the surprise Saturday evening when Farrell co-anchored their evening news as Ron Burgundy with regular anchor Amber Schatz.
Throughout the half-hour newscast, Schatz played straight man to Ferrells over-the-top anchorman Ron Burgundy. She did a relatively good job of it too, only letting out a few snickers that can be heard off camera from time to time.
