“Will Ferrell is one of the greatest comedians of our lifetime, and the unique synergy between Will and iHeartMedia will continue to lead us in accomplishing even more great audio content together,” iHeartRadio’s Conal Byrne said in a statement.

Ferrell expanded: ”The iHeartPodcast Network has been such a pleasure to work with. I love hanging out in the offices and I’ve only been yelled at once for using someone’s computer, which I shouldn’t have done.”

It was recently revealed that Will Ferrell and Ryan Reynolds are set to star in a musical adaptation of A Christmas Carol.


Ferrell also pops up in the recent trailer for Zach Galiafanakis’ new Netflix movie version of his Between Two Ferns show.
