Southeast Public Radio will air NPR News live coverage of President Bush’s State of the Union address on Tuesday, Jan. 23 beginning at 8 p.m.

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., Jan. 18, 2007 — Southeast Public Radio announces plans to air NPR News live coverage of President Bush’s State of the Union address on Tuesday, Jan. 23 beginning at 8 p.m. NPR’s coverage will include the Democratic response and analysis from NPR reporters and guests.

In addition, Southeast Public Radio will air Missouri Gov. Matt Blunt’s State of the State address on Wednesday, Jan. 24 at 7 p.m.

“This is the first time we’ve been able to air the State of the State,” says General Manager Dan Woods. “NPR station KWMU in St. Louis is making the address available to Missouri public radio stations this year, and we think it is important to make the governor’s speech available to our listeners.”

The State of the State coverage will include the Democratic response to the governor’s speech.
