The Miss America 2020 competition will be the 93rd edition, where Miss America 2019 Nia Franklin will crown her successor. At this event, a new representative will be crowned to champion her platform and the Children's Miracle Network as Miss America 2020. The competition will be aired on NBC, its former home of two decades, with a two-hour telecast. The competition is scheduled to be telecast on December 19, 2019 from Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut.
On Wednesday, June 5, 2019, Miss America Organization Chairwoman Gretchen Carlson announced her resignation from the position. Carlson will be replaced by Shantel Krebs, the former South Dakota secretary of state.
"When I was asked to take this volunteer position over a year ago, I dedicated myself to helping the organization build on its history while working to secure its future, and am extremely proud of the work we have collectively done," Carlson said. "With a promising network partnership, the time is ideal to give new leadership the opportunity to move forward with what has been accomplished. Miss America will always be a part of who I am and I will enthusiastically watch as the organization continues to grow and succeed."
