GCN’s 10 Most Popular Stories of 2015

Ever wonder what Glendora residents are interested in reading the most? Our news covers a variety of different areas of the community, including fundraising, volunteer programs, events of all types, politics, weather, crime and tragic events among others.

In 2015, Glendora City News had almost 1 million visitors. While crime stories often received 7,000-20,000 readers, uplifting and positive stories struggled to garner any attention. Stories such as Glendora naming September ‘Childhood Cancer Awareness Month’, our wonderful teachers receiving a well overdue pay increase and a call to help our City of Hope Gift Card Drive typically had less than 1,000 readers.
