News Anchor Dan Thorn Dances to Taylor Swift at Desk, Co-Anchor Throws Shade: Watch the Viral Videos

He just wants to shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake it off! West Virginia news anchor Dan Thorn has become a viral sensation thanks to his dance breaks at his desk for CBS 59. 

The New York native joined the news team in February 2013, according to the channel’s website, but clearly his co-anchor Sarah Pisciuneri hasn’t warmed up to him yet. 

In a series of YouTube videos, Thorn dances to T.I.’s “Where They At Doe,” Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” and James Brown’s “I Got the Feeling.” Pisciuneri sits beside him, doing her best to ignore the goofy reporter, while occasionally looking up to throw buckets full of shade at him.

During one video, he begs her to join in, saying, “Come on, dance around a little bit!”

“I can’t dance on camera,” she replies, stone-faced. 

Despite her cold on-camera persona, Pisciuneri seems to think the videos are amusing, tweeting on Nov. 4, “Looks like I have an interesting social experiment on my hands, muhahaha #partylikeajournalist.”
