President Barack Obama

PBS NewsHour presents live coverage from the Oval Office as the President addresses the nation in regard to the gulf of Mexico oil spill.

President Barack Obama travels the Gulf Coast on Monday to visit three states affected by the oil spill disaster, taking a ferry trip on the oil-slicked waters around Alabama's vulnerable barrier islands. It will be the president's fourth visit to the region since the spill began six weeks ago, and his first to the states east of Louisiana where oil is now washing up on shore. On Tuesday, the President will return to Washington to make his first national address on the disaster, which will also be the first time he will speak to the nation from the Oval Office. Tune in to WXXI-TV on Tuesday, June 15 at 8 p.m. to hear his address, along with commentary from the NewsHour team.

AM 1370 will also broadcast live coverage from National Public Radio of the address.
