BBC Radio 2 have named their headquarters BBC Wogan House in memory of the late television legend, Sir Terry Wogan
BBC Radio 2 have changed the name of their London headquarters to BBC Wogan House in memory of Sir Terry Wogan.
The late television legend, who died of cancer at his Buckinghamshire home on January 31, has been honoured by the radio station where he worked for more than 40 years between 1972-1984 and 1993-2009.
The grand-opening of Wogan House was marked with the unveiling of new plaque at 11.30am on Wednesday (16.11.16) with the Wogan family, BBC Director-General, Tony Hall, Deputy Director-General, Anne Bulford, Director of Radio, Bob Shennan, all in attendance.
Terry's family are thrilled that the radio station have decided to rename the building where Wogan spent so many "happy years" working and are "extremely touched" by the gesture.
They 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."
A special memorial service was held at Westminster Abbey in September in memory of Terry and Chris Evans led the tributes
The 50-year-old radio presenter branded Terry "the best" in his emotional speech as he marked the 50th anniversary of Terry's first ever appearance on the small screen at the ceremony.
He said: "He wasn't the best, he is the best, and he will always be the best."
