When your committee member finds himself in Atlantic City, you send him to visit #BertParks! 👑

Happy Heavenly Birthday to announcer and host, Bert Parks (1914-1992). Parks got his start in the theater at just 4 years old, and was the ripe old age of 16 by the time he made his radio debut, ultimately moving to New York City where he worked as a radio announcer. His success on radio paved the way for various television announcing and hosting gigs, but he is, of course, best remembered as the longtime host of the annual Miss America pageant. From 1955-1979, Parks hosted the pageants, singing “There She Is..” to the winner. Sadly, Parks was fired after his long run at hosting in an attempt to attract a more youthful audience 😞. I think that was very shortsighted of Miss America, considering the man last hosted 38 years ago and passed away 25 years ago and yet his name is STILL synonymous with the pageant!!! Years ago I recall watching a program about his firing and, of memory serves, it truly broke his heart...rightfully so 😞🙏🏼💖. He was married for just under 50 years and had 3 children. Parks passed away from lung cancer at the age of 77. This picture is mislabeled online incorrectly identifying the woman as Miss America 1959, which would be the lovely Mary Ann Mobley (1937-2014), who is definitely not the woman pictured. I’m pretty sure this photo is actually of Miss America 1961 Nancy Fleming (1942- ). #bertparks #happybirthday #heavenlybirthday #happyheavenlybirthday #missamerica #classichost #vintagehost #announcer #nancyfleming
