The Top 5 WOBM Articles Of 2016
It's hard to believe that we're sitting here on November 16th already and looking at a new year only weeks away (actually, 45 days from right now to be exact).
It was a big year for WOBM.com, and here are the top 5 articles of the year from our website:
August saw a massive drug bust in the heart of Ocean County as over half a dozen people were taken into custody, charged with drug distribution and manufacturing.
On a much more positive note, New Jersey had reason to be proud ahead of Summer 2016 when, in April, Ocean City was crowned the Best Beach in America in an online nationwide poll.
Our first ever Mascot Madness completely took over WOBM.com back in the spring. We could even say that it took over Ocean County as we saw over 100,000 votes across the whole competition! And of course we all know how this one ended, with the Toms River East Raiders taking the bragging rights!
We wanted to keep the school spirit rolling into the summer while also recognizing the hard work and talent in Ocean County's marching bands! In an article that's been shared thousands of times since August, this is one that's still getting action on WOBM.com right to today!
This is one that has literally been with us for years. I first wrote this article when I got a suspicious looking postcard in the mail after I bought my condo. I did some research and found out that it wasn't totally on the level. Since I first wrote about my experience in 2013 the article has been viewed over 100,000 times, a full quarter of which came in 2016.
