CNN Headline News' Robin Meade will be one of the judges for the 2008 Miss America Pageant. The contest will air on Saturday, January 26, 2008 Live from Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas, on TLC. Here are a few excerpts from the press release:
This year’s panel of judges is comprised of experts in each of the fields that a young woman must excel in, in order to be named Miss America. Miss America must be beautiful, talented, intelligent and well-spoken, a leader, have a commitment to her community, be contemporary in her style and fashion - a relatable and individual ‘it girl’ who can connect with today’s modern woman, as well as being physically fit.
From the Communications/Interview Field - Robin Meade – As the lead news anchor for Headline News’ morning show, “Morning Express with Robin Meade,” she has anchored the network’s coverage of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
