(AP) There she is, Miss America, headed back to Atlantic City, N.J.


The Miss America pageant was an Atlantic City staple for decades before it was moved to Las Vegas in 2006.


Gov. Chris Christie's spokesman Michael Drewniak confirmed the news of the pageant's return to Atlantic City on Wednesday night. Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno (gwah-DAHN'-oh) is scheduled make a formal announcement Thursday on Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall.


The Miss America pageant started as little more than a bathing suit revue. It broke viewership records in its heyday and bills itself as one of the world's largest scholarship programs for women. But like other pageants, it has struggled to stay relevant as national attitudes regarding women's rights have changed.


Pageant officials haven't responded to an after-hours email seeking comment.
