When I was growing up Terry Wogan was a television presenter and a legend. It wasn’t until my second term at college where I was studying for my Media BTEC that I knew any different. We were asked to conduct research on someone’s career in the industry. Never wanting to follow the crowd and do what everyone else was doing (film directors) I randomly opted for Radio. At the time all I ever listened to was Capital FM, and I had no clue where to even begin. My tutor suggested researching Terry Wogan. It was there I discovered his time working in hospital radio and from this start I went and got myself experience at my local Hospital Radio station. I have to make it clear at this point I had very little desire to do anything within media and was just simply doing it because it seemed like the easy option. It was this little task that somehow magically opened the world of Audio to me.
I thank you Terry Wogan for your hard work and the path you took that inspired me. Our radio waves and television signals won’t be the same without you.
I leave you with his last radio show at BBC Radio 2…..
