Sir Michael Terence "Terry" Wogan KBE DL (born 3 August 1938) is a veteran Irish radio and television broadcaster and comedian, who has worked for the British Broadcasting Corporation in the United Kingdom for most of his career. With a regular 8 million listeners, he is the most listened to radio broadcaster of any European nation. He began his career at Raidió Teilifís Éireann where he presented shows such as Jackpot in the 1960s.

Wogan has been a leading media personality in the UK since the late 1960s and is often referred to as a "national treasure" of the United Kingdom. He is perhaps best known in the United Kingdom for his BBC 1 chat show Wogan, for his work presenting Children in Need, as the host of BBC Radio 2's breakfast show Wake Up to Wogan (which he will leave after December 2009, when Chris Evans, the Radio 2 Drivetime host, will take over), and as the BBC's commentator for the Eurovision Song Contest from 1980 to 2008. When Chris Evans takes over the breakfast show, Terry Wogan will have a brand new primetime weekend show on Radio 2.
