Final preparations are underway in Atlantic City this afternoon for tonight’s Miss America Competition, where you’ll be seeing several familiar TV News faces. ABC’s coverage begins at 8pmET with an ABC News special “Countdown to Miss America.” Sam Haskell, chairman and CEO of the Miss America Organization told our sister site TVSpy what to expect for tonight’s 60th anniversary show.
“20/20″ is doing an hour-long special on Miss America, [hosted by “Good Morning America’s” Amy Robach]. So we’ll be expanding our reach and it will essentially be a 3 hour event. We’ve got Chris Harrison from The Bachelor hosting with Lara Spencer, plus Gretchen Carlson will giving us behind the scenes coverage. It’s going to be a great show.
