LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Ford Truck Plant on Chamberlain Lane may soon be hiring new workers.

WDRB has learned that new jobs are expected to be announced at a news conference planned for Thursday.

Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer and high ranking Ford executives are scheduled to appear at the event, which will include a tour of the plant.
