2012 in Review: Top 10 Stories

What were the biggest news stories of 2012?

If left up to personal opinion, a year-end list would be so subjective as to be almost worthless. So, much like in previous years, we’ll measure the biggest stories by the ones that attracted the most page views:

  1. Stephen Hill Passes Away (August 6)
  2. Glenn Dustin leaves Legacy Five (July 12)
  3. NQC Posts 2012 Schedule (January 6)
  4. Gordon Mote Leaves Gaither Tour (May 28)
  5. Paul Harkey replaces Ian Owens with Ernie Haase & Signature Sound (October 1)
  6. Tim Duncan’s son Seriously Injured (May 13)
  7. Tim Greene Trio in Bus Accident (March 1)
  8. NQC to Move to Pigeon Forge in 2014 (September 9)
  9. Paul Harkey Joins LeFevre Quartet (August 15)
  10. NQC 2012, Day 1: Live Blog (September 10)

It’s worth noting that the actual leader in page views for the year was a story from October 2011, Tim Duncan joins Canton Junction. This year alone, it got 13,410 page views!
