The annual pageant had been held for the last several years in Las Vegas, with the most recent ceremony taking place at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

Miss America's move to Atlantic City will mean that the pageant will be brought forward to September, despite the most recent pageant taking place in January.

The reigning Miss America Mallory Hagan will be paid for the full year, even with her reign being cut short by a few months.

A week of celebrations is scheduled to begin in New Jersey on September 10, according to The AP.

ABC retains the rights to broadcast the Miss America pageant through 2016.
