The BBC has announced that it is changing the name of its Western House building in Central London to Wogan House in honour of Terry Wogan, who died earlier this year. Wogan was a regular in the building, which is home to BBC Radio 2.

In a statement, Wogan’s family said: “BBC Radio 2 was such an important part of Terry’s life. He spent so many happy years there doing what he loved – chatting and laughing with the listeners from his studio in BBC Western House every weekday morning. We are so proud that the building is being renamed ‘Wogan House’ in his honour, the whole family are extremely touched by such a wonderful gesture”.

BBC Director Of Radio Bob Shennan added: “Terry was a much-loved Radio 2 personality and it is right we honour him in this way. Each time we all walk through the doors of Wogan House we will be forever reminded of him – his warmth, wit and endless charm”.

An official renaming ceremony took place yesterday morning.
