Raiders game broadcast on KTNN in Navajo

History was made on Sunday night with the first-ever NFL Raiders football game to be broadcast in Navajo.

The Oakland Raiders and KTNN, the voice of the Navajo Nation, teamed up to make the presentation. KTNN broadcasters L.A. Williams and Ernie Manuelito gave the play-by-play and analysis in the Navajo language.

Manuelito said the Raiders are one of the most popular teams on the reservation. So are the Denver Broncos, he said, who defeated the Raiders 31-17 yesterday.
