Web-TV Convergence for Obama Speech

All the broadcasters and cable networks will be carrying Pres. Obama’s Address to Congress tonight. And this year, the Websites of those networks will also be adding coverage and making it a social experience.

• ABC’s “Nightline” will actually go on a little earlier than normal around 10:30pmET on ABCNEWS.com. Web users can post reactions to the President’s speech through Twitter with some of the tweets appearing on the Webcast. Anchor Terry Moran (@terrymoran) will continue to share viewer reaction to the speech during “Nightline” at 11:35pmET and then back on the Web at 12:05amET.

ABCNEWS.com will also live stream ABC News NOW’s coverage of the President’s address.

• CBS’ Katie Couric will anchor a Webcast on CBSNews.com at approximately 10:30pmET, immediately following the broadcast coverage. The Webcast will include interviews, special guests, and extended analysis from CBS News correspondents and contributors, as well as live response to viewer questions submitted online before and during the Webcast. Questions can be submitted here.

• Fox News Channel will stream coverage on FOXNews.com and FNC’s Facebook page will contain video clips of the address as well as an open wall discussion.
