Wogan to quit radio show

VETERAN DJ Terry Wogan quit his Radio 2 show after 27 years yesterday and told his listeners: “I’d rather leave while we’re in love.”

The Limerick-born presenter – who has Britain’s most listened-to programme – will be replaced by his one-time breakfast show rival Chris Evans.

Wogan, 71, told his Wake Up To Wogan listeners he would be stepping down at the end of the year.

Wogan, whose show has eight million listeners, made his announcement live on air, and said the decision to leave was “the hardest thing I have ever done in my broadcasting career”.

He will continue to work for Radio 2 with a new weekend show when he leaves the breakfast slot.
