LONDON (AP) — Terry Wogan, one of the best-known voices and faces on British television and radio, has died aged 77.
His family said in a statement Wogan died Sunday surrounded by family members “after a short but brave battle with cancer.”
The Irish-born disc jockey and presenter was a staple of British broadcasting, best known for his long-running radio morning show and his annual hosting duties for Britain’s coverage of the Eurovision Song Contest.
His strengths were a deep, buttery voice, dollops of Irish charm and a sly, subversive humor.
