    Paul Pohlman was the essence of a gentle man: A good listener, a wise counsel, a caring human being. He guided many young journalists to embark on careers as newsroom leaders who would mirror those same precious human attributes. It’s sad to hear he is gone. He will be missed by his colleagues and by his friends, but he made his mark — by shaping the many young news people he mentored at Poynter.
