Your Top 10 SG News Stories of 2008: A Statistical Analysis

Several bloggers have posted their top 10 news stories for the past year, but I thought I’d do something a little different.  Here are the top 10 news stories on this blog, based on the number of views each post received over the past year.

  1. Matt Dibler Leaves The Inspirations
  2. Greg and Charlotte Ritchie Leave Jeff & Sheri Easter
  3. Dottie Rambo Passes Away
  4. Guy Penrod’s Sabbatical from GVB
  5. Jerry Ritchie Passes Away
  6. Bobby All Hospitalized
  7. GVB’s Lovin’ Life Track Listing Released
  8. Monument Quartet Changes
  9. Scott Rogers Departs Crossway
  10. The Segos Controversy

I find this to be quite an interesting list.  There are some surprising inclusions over glaring omissions here.  I would have expected Wilburn to have appeared here, and definitely the GV tenor swap.  However, by a quick count, Kitson’s replacement of Waldroup was down around #18, and I hadn’t even found the GC lead swap yet.  I think this provides an interesting look into what you, the reader, found to be the most interesting news stories.  Also, understand that I didn’t count non-news items (reviews, pure opinion posts, etc.) in this list.  Quite interesting, to say the least.


Naomi and The Segos Update

According to a recent article on Southern Gospel News there is no conflict between Naomi and the boys and all seems to be well. This is good to hear but things still don’t add up and it’s hard to believe it was all a “misrepresentation” based on all the facts presented…especially after reading this article. The most recent release is from the record company she is currently working with, so if I was them I can understand trying to smooth things over. Nobody wants to possibly miss sales and lose money. The whole things reminds me of a scene from a movie called The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad where there is a car chase and the one being pursued crashes a rocket into a building of fireworks; starting off a 4th of July quality show while Lt. Frank Drebin, in an attempt at crowd control, says “alright, move on…nothing to see here.”
