Mark Steines of Entertainment Tonight to Host 2008 Miss America Live! Event

- 2008 MISS AMERICA LIVE - Broadcast for the First Time in High Definition - Airs Saturday, January 26, on TLC -

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 17 -- The Miss America Organization and TLC announced today that Entertainment Tonight co-anchor and correspondent Mark Steines will host the 2008 Miss America Live! airing from Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas on Saturday, January 26 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed). The two-hour HD event airs as the finale to MISS AMERICA: REALITY CHECK, a four-part special designed to prep the 52 hopefuls for a renewed competition that will redefine what it takes to be Miss America, a relatable "it girl" who can connect with today's modern woman.

From small town Iowa to the red carpets of Hollywood, Emmy-winning journalist Mark Steines has established himself as one of the most trusted and charismatic figures in entertainment news today with his sincerity and signature charm.

Art McMaster, President and CEO for the Miss America Organization stated, "Mark is the perfect choice to host our event. We know that his dedication and commitment to the Miss America program will shine through, and given the fact that Mark is married to one of our most beloved Miss America's, Leanza Cornett, he already offers a great appreciation for the show."

"Mark has been at the forefront of television entertainment news for over a decade, interviewing some of Hollywood's biggest names," says Brant Pinvidic, senior vice president of programming for TLC. It's only natural that he would host one of television's biggest events featuring America's next generation of celebrities."

Steines has garnered numerous journalistic honors and accolades, such as four Emmy nominations resulting in three Emmy wins. He was awarded with a National Iris Award for outstanding reporting and garnered national recognition by the Women's Sports Foundation. Steines was also named one of People Magazine's "Sexist Men in 2004."

Also an actor, Steines has appeared on such television shows as "CSI: NY," "Half & Half," "America's Next Top Model", "Suddenly Susan" and "The Practice" as well as in Sony Pictures NIXON, among others. He recently lent his voice to the hit Disney Channel cartoon "Handy Manny" opposite Wilmer Valderrama, and has performed on stage in an Alhambra Theater production of "Barefoot in the Park."

The Miss America Organization and TLC have teamed Grammy Award-winning producer Anthony Eaton and Emmy Award-winning director Bruce Gowers to helm the 2008 Miss America Live! event.
