Hazen Schumacher passed away this Saturday morning in Ann Arbor.
The name Hazen Schumacher means many things to many people. He was a family man first of all – loving husband, father and grandfather. As a public figure Hazen is remembered with respect at The University of Michigan as a professor of communications and as one of the early pioneers of WUOM, now known as Michigan Radio. Along with providing guidance to WUOM management, Hazen Schumacher brought national recognition to the station for his syndicated program Jazz Revisited. It was distributed by WUOM and NPR from 1967 through 1997.
