A scheduled appearance by Ron Burgundy, the character played by Will Ferrell in the movie "Anchorman," on ESPN's SportsCenter Thursday has been canceled.

According to ESPN, the decision was made "in light of the potential implications of any news from the State Attorney’s press conference in Fla."

The Florida press conference at 2 p.m. is to announce the findings of an investigation into an accusation of sexual assault against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston.

ESPN said the Burgundy appearance has not been rescheduled.
