Sir Terry presenters a weekly show on Sunday on BBC Radio 2. (Currently on his summer break)The show features live music and special guests.
Sir Terry was born in Limerick, Ireland and educated at the city's Crescent College. After leaving college Sir Terry went into banking where his innate ability to separate half crowns from two bob bits soon marked him down for greater things.Five years later he joined RTE (the Irish National Radio and TV Service) as a newsreader announcer.
After two years of interviewing and presenting documentary features, Sir Terry started as a disc jockey and host of television quiz and variety shows. His first regular BBC Radio show was Midday Spin and, when Radio 1 started, he presented Late Night Extra for a couple of years, traveling between Dublin and London every week.
In 1969, he stood in for Jimmy Young when he went on holiday and later that year, Sir Terry took on his own daily show on Radio 1 and 2. In April 1972 he took over the morning show on Radio 2. He presented this until 1984, shortly before his three times a week chat show, 'Wogan' began on BBC One. The programme ran for the next seven years.
His extensive television credits also include 'Song for Europe', 'The Eurovision Song Contest', 'Lunchtime with Wogan', 'Come Dancing', 'Celebrity Squares', 'New Faces' and 'Blankety Blank'.
He returned to Radio 2 in 1993 as host of 'Wake Up To Wogan' and presented the show until December 2009. He was knighted in 2005.
