The Miss America Organization, dick clark productions and ABC announced Monday that TV personality and fan-favorite Chris Harrison ("The Bachelor" franchise and "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire") will host the 2018 Miss America Competition. Joining Harrison as co-host of the legendary competition, once again, is popular host and lead commentator for ESPN's "SportsCenter on the Road" and "SportsCenter:AM," Sage Steele.
Airing live on ABC from Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall on Sunday, Sept. 10 (9-11 p.m. EDT), the 2018 Miss America Competition will showcase the intellect, grace and exceptional talent of 51 accomplished women representing their home states (and District of Columbia) to compete for the coveted title of Miss America.
"It's an honor to grace the Miss America stage as host for the ninth time," Harrison said. "I'm extremely happy to be sharing the hosting duties once again with my friend Sage Steele. Sage is a true professional whose quick wit and charisma lights up the stage and the show."
"I can honestly say that co-hosting Miss America last year was one of the most memorable events I've been a part of in my 22 years in this business," Steele said. "These young women are so inspirational to millions across the country, including my own daughters, and yours truly! I can't wait to reunite with my friend, Chris Harrison, and the entire team in Atlantic City!"
"Chris Harrison has been a part of our Miss America family for almost a decade," said Sam Haskell, executive chairman and CEO of the Miss America Organization. "We are thrilled to have him host his ninth Miss America telecast, as he is both a great friend and one of our most stalwart ambassadors!"
"We are thrilled to have Sage Steele return for her second year as co-host of the Miss America Competition," said Josh Randle, president of the Miss America Organization. "Sage brings her energy and flair to the telecast, and she embodies the style and success synonymous with Miss America."
