ABC News will broadcast President Barack Obama's State of the Union address live on TUESDAY, JANUARY 25. Coverage will begin at 9:00 p.m., ET and will include the Republican response.

Deborah Roberts will report on voter reaction from Indiana. ABC News contributors George Will, Donna Brazile and Matthew Dowd will provide additional analysis.

As the President prepares to give his State of the Union address, he faces a new reality at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue with a Republican majority in the House and an emboldened Republican minority in the Senate. ABC News' team of anchors and correspondents will examine the President's address, looking specifically at his proposals for job creation and economic recovery, his commitment to the July deadline for a withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, and his effort to elevate the tenor of discourse in Washington following his address at the memorial in Tucson, Arizona.

Joe Lieberman (I-CT), Sen. Kent Conrad (D-ND), and Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson (R-TX), join Christiane Amanpour to debate the state of our nation and assess what the President needs to achieve in his speech next week.

On Tuesday, Diane Sawyer will anchor "World News" from Washington, DC. After the speech, ABC News' Terry Moran will anchor a special edition of "Nightline" from Washington with complete State of the Union coverage and analysis, live at 11:35 p.m., ET.
