Brooke Burke-Charvet to co-host Miss America pageant

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Brooke Burke-Charvet, the actress, entrepreneur and fitness guru, will co-host the 2016 Miss America pageant next month.

The Miss America Organization announced Friday that Burke-Charvet will join Chris Harrison on the nationally televised broadcast from Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall on Sunday, Sept. 13 on ABC.

"It's always impressive and inspiring to meet the young women who strive to make a difference in their communities, while furthering their education and advancing principles of service, style and success," she said.

Burke-Charvet won the mirror ball trophy on "Dancing With The Stars" and went on to co-host eight seasons of the ABC television series.

She founded and launched BabooshBaby.com, where she sells her popular post-pregnancy belly wraps.

In 2011, she launched the online mommy destination ModernMom.com, where she is the co-CEO.

She also developed, co-produces and hosts a new series debuting in October for the Hallmark-owned online streaming service Feeln called "Breaking Bread With Brooke Burke," a food-oriented lifestyle talk show with celebrity guests.

Pageant judges include Brett Eldredge, Taya Kyle, Kevin O'Leary, Amy Purdy and Zendaya. Nick Jonas will act as the official music curator of the evening.
