Longtime broadcaster and journalist Harlan McKosato, 54, was “instrumental” in establishing "Native American Calling."
A citizen of the Sac and Fox Nation, McKosato had a natural ability to connect with listeners. On air, he was just as adept at taking on career politicians as he was engaging artists about their inspirations.
McKosato died July 21, 2020, at his home in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Survivors include son, Nekon Che McKosato, brother, Kenneth Robert McKosato, and sisters Deanna Lynn McKosato and Shelley Magdalene McKosato-Haupt.
