After being sold off by Donald Trump amid his beef with NBC, the Miss Universe Pageant has landed on Fox. Bloomberg reports that Fox will air Miss Universe and Miss USA.
“Contestants from more than 80 countries will take part in the 64th annual Miss Universe contest, which will air live from Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas on Sunday, Dec. 20, the broadcast division of 21st Century Fox Inc. and pageant owner WME/IMG said Wednesday in a statement,” Bloomberg reports. “The next Miss USA contest will air in 2016 on Fox.”
David Madden, president of entertainment for Fox Broadcasting, said in the statement: “The Miss Universe and Miss USA pageants are iconic television events loved by generations of viewers around the world. We are very excited to partner with IMG and The Miss Universe Organization to infuse a fresh new energy into these perennial broadcast favorites.”
WME/IMG acquired the Miss Universe Organization from Trump in September.
