We lost a great guy yesterday; Paul Gates, retired newsman from WAFB TV, at the age of 69 from Alzheimers Disease. Paul and I started out at about the same time as “youngsters” in the business years ago…. What I remember most of all about Paul wasn’t his journalistic skill, which was considerable, or his wit, which was razor sharp, but his great humanity. He was truly a nice guy: the right combination of humility, humor, empathy and people skills. He was more than a media talent. He was a skilled human being. God bless, Paul.
