The PBS NewsHour will provide live coverage of President Obama’s State of the Union Address Tuesday, January 24 at 8:00 p.m. Central on NPT. Gwen Ifill will anchor coverage of both the address and the Republican response, to be given by Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels. With Ifil in the studio to provide commentary and analysis will be PBS NewsHour regulars David Brooks, columnist for The New York Times, and Ruth Marcus, columnist for The Washington Post.
Our PBS NewsHour coverage of the State of the Union will shift around some of our programming, including pre-empting the 8:00 p.m. broadcast of GERONIMO: AMERICAN EXPERIENCE. We will air the PBS NewsHour coverage and join FRONTLINE in progress if necessary. GERONIMO: AMERICAN EXPERIENCE will then replace AFROPOP at 11:00 p.m. The daytime repeats of GERONIMO will remain (Thursday, January 26 at 8:00am and Friday, January 27 at 1:00pm on NPT2) pending legislative coverage.
GERONIMO: AMERICAN EXPERIENCE will also replace TUPPERWARE: AMERICAN EXPERIENCE on February 14 at 7:00 p.m.
