Donald Trump is going to give his first official State of the Union address to Congress and the nation Tuesday night, and the speech will receive blanket coverage across pretty much every major network on broadcast and all the cable news networks. PBS will of course be among them, and you won’t need anything other than a computer or mobile device, as well as an internet connection, to watch its coverage of Trump’s speech.
PBS NewsHour’s coverage of the speech will begin at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT — that’s the scheduled time for Trump’s address to begin, but these things never start right on time. PBS’s NewsHour’s broadcast will be hsoted by anchor and managing editor Judy Woodruff, with assists from correspondents Yamiche Alcindor reporting live from the White House and Lisa Desjardins reporting live from the Capitol.
PBS will also feature a full array of political pundits providing analysis of the State of the Union Address, including New York Times columnist David Brooks, the Cook Political Report’s Amy Walter, American Conservative Union chair Matt Schlapp, MoveOn national spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre, and syndicated columnist Mark Shields.
You’ll be able to view Trump’s State of the Union address and PBS NewsHour’s coverage for free live on YouTube, no cable login required. We’ve embedded PBS’s Youtube feed above for your convenience. You can also get it on YouTube itself by clicking here.
