Photos: Franco Ordoñez shares White House stories at WGLT's Radio Faces

NPR's Franco Ordoñez shared some of his favorite stories from covering two presidential administrations with hundreds of public radio superfans Wednesday at WGLT's Radio Faces event.

Radio Faces is WGLT's annual celebration of public radio and the people who make it possible. That includes new inductees into WGLT's Hall of Fame.
