One of the most interesting aspects of working in online media is being able to see what people click on -- often times to our surprise.
Looking at 2012's most popular stories, here's what you, our online audience, appears to be most interested in: controversy, weather photos, Tony Romo, Anime and near wardrobe malfunctions.
It's important to understand that some stories pick up steam by ranking high on search engines or by getting linked on popular websites. So just because something is one of our most popular web stories does not necessarily reflect the tastes of our San Antonio audience. Instead, it reflects the tastes of all Internet users who just so happened to stumble upon Kens5.com while surfing the web.
