Gov. Mitch Daniels is expected to be in Evansville at 11:30 a.m. Eastern
time today to participate in an AT&T announcement that it will place a
call center in the southwestern Indiana city.
The call center, which will service Cingular Wireless customers, will
employ more than 500, according to the Evansville Courier & Press.
However, San Antonio, Texas, telecommunications company has not settled
on a site. A former Sam's Club is one possibility, a real estate broker
told the newspaper.
The announcement confirms an IBJ report April 10 that AT&T was eyeing
Evansville but had not been finalized the deal.
In February, AT&T said it will hire 425 call center workers in downtown
Indianapolis at an average wage of about $40,000.
