From Atlantic City Press:

Miss America is once again leaving Atlantic City.

The 2020 Miss America Competition is scheduled to be telecasted on Dec. 19 from Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut, according to NBC.

“The Miss America Organization is proud to partner with Mohegan Sun as we return to our longtime NBC home,” said Regina Hopper, President & CEO, Miss America Organization. “We are looking forward to a fresh take on this historic competition that will showcase the incredible women vying for the job of Miss America 2020.”

The future of the pageant had been up in the air since the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority did not renew the subsidy contract following the Miss America 2019 Competition.

We’re thrilled to be hosting an impact event like the Miss America Competition in December," said Ray Pineault, President & General Manager of Mohegan Sun, "we look forward to working with both MAO & NBC on what will be a tremendous evening.”

The Miss America pageant started in Atlantic City in 1922 and grew to become a national event televised from Boardwalk Hall for more than 50 years. In 2008, the Miss America pageant was moved from Atlantic City to Las Vegas for eight years, then returned in 2013 incentivized by a state subsidy.

NBC was announced as the telecast partner of the Miss America 2020 and 2021 competitions in May.

That’s too long from now. People will busy around that time due to holidays, and will forget to watch. Or have better things to do. I don’t see a future for Miss America. :(

We always attend but won't be able to due to the close proximity to Christmas. How's the weather in Conn. in mid December?
