NUVO is mourning the loss of WICR host and Jazz Notes columnist Chuck Workman today. Chuck passed away over the weekend, leaving behind readers, listeners and loved ones.

Chuck was bestowed with various honors during his long career in Indianapolis as a broadcaster, writer and jazz legend.

We'll have a longer memorial in this week's NUVO. We'll also update you with funeral and viewing arrangements when we receive them.

Until then, we have almost 20 years of writing from Chuck for you to read: his retrospective on NUVO's 20th anniversary; interviews with stars like Esperanza Spalding; year in review columns; his last column, an interview with Chuck Loeb, published just last week; and countless others.

Chuck, you will be missed. Your contribution to NUVO and Indianapolis cannot be measured.

If you would like to share your memories of Chuck, I encourage you to send those to me at We'll share thoughts in his memory throughout the week.
