Tonight is President Joe Biden’s 2022 State of the Union address. If you’re on the West Coast, such as in California, and you’re interested in watching, we have all the details below.

Biden’s SOTU 2022 Speech Begins at 6 PM Pacific

If you’re on the West Coast and thus in the Pacific time zone, then you’ll be watching Biden’s 2022 State of the Union speech in the early evening tonight, beginning at 6 p.m. Pacific on Tuesday, March 1.

This is a little earlier than people who are watching on the East Coast. For them, the State of the Union is airing later in the evening at 9 p.m. Eastern.

Sometimes knowing the exact time a televised event is airing on the West Coast can be a little confusing, since some stations air live events on a time delay so they will air in the Pacific time zone’s prime time spot. But Biden’s speech is expected to air live on the West Coast, at the same time that it’s airing in other time zones across the country and world.

On ABC 7, for example, coverage starts right at 6 p.m. Pacific until 8 p.m., immediately following Eyewitness News at  5 p.m.

KSBW HD-TV (NBC) begins its coverage at 6 p.m. following NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt at 5:30 p.m.

KPIX (CBS in San Francisco) runs its SOTU coverage from 6-8 p.m., right after “CBS Evening News with Norah O’Donnell” and followed by a new episode of “FBI.”

KTVU (Fox in San Francisco) runs its SOTU coverage from 6-7:30 p.m., right after KTVU Fox 2 News at 5. And after coverage ends, the 7 p.m. Newscast on KTVU will air later (at 7:30 p.m. today), followed by a new episode of “The Resident.”

CBS47 Fresno’s schedule is also covering the State of the Union from 6-8 p.m., followed by a new episode of “FBI.”
