Another year – and not just any year – is in the books. December finished 2020 if with the bang, which is reflected in our top 12 stories countdown for the month.

Frontier’s pending emergence from bankruptcy and Apple’s latest product releases cracked our top 12 stories countdown once again.

Those were just a few of the stories making headlines last month.
