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.

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.
