He also is a senior correspondent and director of digital partnerships. The Mumbai-born journalist has been an anchor for ABC's News Now, a reporter for Nightline, World News Tonight and CBS Evening News.

Nina Davaluri, the other emcee, recently completed her reign as Miss America, the first Indian-American to win the title. Though born in the U.S., she spent most of the first two-and-a-half years of her life in Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh.

Nikki Haley is the governor of the South Carolina.
