The Miss America Organization Announces Rush Limbaugh as a National Judge for
the 2010 Miss America Pageant



LINWOOD, N.J., Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The Miss America Organization (MAO)
announced today that Rush Limbaugh has been named as one of the national
judges for the 2010 Miss America Pageant, which will be held at Planet
Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas on Saturday, January 30 and broadcast
live on TLC.


Limbaugh will be one of a panel of seven distinguished judges that will help
decide which of the 53 contestants will capture the Miss America 2010 title
and serve as the Goodwill Ambassador for the Children's Miracle Network, as
well as introduce the first Go Green platform for MAO.


The Rush Limbaugh Program is in its 22nd year.   Starting in 1988 on 56 radio
stations and 256,000 listeners, the Rush Limbaugh Program continues its streak
as the most listened to radio talk show in America, with nearly 600 radio
stations and an audience of 20 million.


In the 1990s, Limbaugh's fame grew beyond radio and into other media, such as
publishing and television. He became a bestselling author with his books The
Way Things Ought to Be (1992) and See, I Told You So (1993). From 1992 to 1996
Limbaugh hosted a half-hour television talk show. 


"We are thrilled to have Rush join us for our pageant this year," said MAO
President and CEO, Art McMaster.  "We know that the 2010 Miss America Pageant
will be filled with new twists and exciting opportunities with him as one of
our national judges." 


The Miss America Organization is one of the nation's leading achievement
programs and the world's largest provider of scholarship assistance for young

assistance. For more information, go to www.missamerica.org.
