The WGN Dance Party happen just before the weekend news, which has recently been released in the form of a viral video. Robert Jordan and Jackie Bange are Chicago news institutions and watched across the U.S., as WGN is carried by all major cable carriers as the WGN Superstation. Jordan and Bange worked out an elaborate routine that is a refreshing change from Bill O'Reilly rants and other miscues by news reporters and anchors.
Implications - Robert Jordan and Jackie Bange state that the name of their dance is called What Anchors Do During Commercials. The duo have stated that their dance was in motion years before the public ever knew it existed. Only the camera crews were lucky enough to see it every week.
