Radio observations have resulted in some of the most fundamental and exciting discoveries in time-domain astronomy. Here I demonstrate the potential for the next generation Very Large Array (ngVLA) to localize prompt centimeter-wavelength counterparts to the coalescing binary supermassive black holes (SMBHs) to be detected by the LISA mission. The resulting redshift measurements of the hosts of LISA-detected coalescences will populate a Hubble diagram up to the epoch of the earliest galaxies. Analysis of the host environments and the electromagnetic coalescence signatures will provide crucial insight into the interactions between binary SMBHs and their environments, and the mechanisms of SMBH formation and growth.
