Here it is! Tucked between listicles of the best Netflix series to binge and favorite books of the year is your public radio station’s top 10 web stories of 2019.

We’re talking about news stories from this year that got the most eyeballs on them.

For better or worse, 2017 has been a monumental year. By now you've probably seen the commercials putting this year to rest--but not yet! We want to spend the final days of 2017 reminiscing on some of the stories that went viral here on the home front.

Each person in the KBSX newsroom submitted these stories that, to us, stood out in our 2014 coverage.
