Veronica gets offered a better job in New York, but Ron is fired for repeatedly screwing up while reading the news. Shortly after this, the once happy couple get into a big fight and break up. Months later, Ron gets offered a new job at a 24-hour news station, which is also in New York. He accepts the job and brings his old news team: the mentally challenged weatherman Brick (played by Steve Carell), country-culture lover sportscaster Champ (played by David Koechner) and ladies man field reporter Brian (played by Paul Rudd).
