Top 10 Stories of 2013


We’re closing in on the end of another year and what a year it’s been. Once again, it’s been our honor and privilege to cover the news, weather, sports and other events that affect your lives, touch your hearts, or maybe just make your day a little bit better. And we appreciate your loyal viewership. Without you, we’d really have no reason to do what we do each day.

We want you to play a big role in selecting what you believe to be the big stories of 2013. We’ve compiled nearly 50 stories, in no particular order, that we saw as the most important to the people of Northwest Florida. By no means is this THE definitive list. But it is the most representative list of the stories we spent the most time and energy covering over the past year. We’re asking you to pick your top 10 out of the list.

You can vote between now and Sunday, December 1st at 11:59 pm. We’ll then calculate the results and present the Top 10 news stories of 2013 during a special presentation of NewsChannel 7 @ 10:00 on New Year’s Eve December 31st, 2013.

So, weigh-in with your opinion, have fun, and have a great 2013. And, once again, thanks for make NewsChannel 7 your #1 source for news. NewsChannel 7 is Coverage You Can Count On!
