Outspoken Miss America Chairperson Gretchen Carlson Quits

Outspoken chairperson of the board of Miss America Organization, Gretchen Carlson, has quitted the position, reported some US media on June 5, 2019.

Gretchen Carlson, reportedly a hardcore feminist and former Miss America herself, masterminded the elimination of the iconic swimsuit competition from Miss America pageant and controversially replaced it with some sort of interview session. While she received some support in some quarters during her reign, she was also lambasted in some quarters on various grounds.

Former secretary of state for South Dakota Shantel Krebs replaces Gretchen Carlson.
