    Post Two Navajo broadcasters make history announcing a college FB game in Navajo language

    Two Navajo broadcasters make history announcing a college football game in the Navajo language…

    Two men from the Navajo Nation made history at Saturday’s Rio Grande Rivalry game, with a first-of-its-kind radio broadcast in Albuquerque. For the first time ever, two men from the Navajo Nation announced a D-1 college football game in the Navajo Language.


    “This is the first time that the Lobos and Aggies football game here in Albuquerque is the first time it’s been broadcast,” said Cuyler Frank with KCZY 107.3 FM. “Glen and I are the first to do it. So this is going to be the first time it’s going to be on a radio station on the Navajo Nation from Albuquerque.” Frank was the play-by-play commentator for Saturday’s Rio Grande Rivalry game, alongside his color commentator, Glen King. Both are from the KCZY 107.3 radio station located in Crownpoint, New Mexico which broadcasts throughout the eastern part of the Navajo Nation.

    I know there is a real effort to save the language. Only about 200,000 are left on the reservation and the average age is about 24. It sounds like kids are bugging out as soon as they can and not coming back.

    Soon you will have to add English to that list to be preserved.
