Tonight at 11: Secrets behind the banners

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Hometown pride is the idea behind a series of banners you've probably seen around Louisville.

WAVE 3 News Reporter Janelle MacDonald got the facts and the behind-the-scenes secrets of the banners -- like this one:

Plus, who's next to be honored with a hometown hero sign.
