It’s that time of year again.
Analysing the news that we have broken or shared over the last 12 months, we find two major exclusives that drew more than 200,000 readers each – the sign of a growing, global community. In 2012, Slipped Disc served 5.2 million readers, a daily average of well over 14,000.
But the content is the thing. What do you think were the year’s biggest circulation magnets?
Was it the demotion of a New York Times critic?
The premature retirement of a much-loved baritone?
The tragic death of a young pianist?
Turmoil in the Vienna Philharmonic?
The man whose cellphone went off in the middle of Mahler’s 9th?
None of the above?

All will be revealed on New Year’s Eve.
