British broadcaster Terry Wogan dies aged 77
Veteran British broadcaster Terry Wogan has died at the age of 77.
His family made the announcement on Sunday, saying he fought a “short but brave battle with cancer”.
Irish-born Wogan joined the BBC in 1966 and became a mainstay of the network’s television and radio channels.
He received a knighthood in 2005 for his contribution to the industry.
British Prime Minister David Cameron led the tributes on Twitter.
He called Wogan a “huge talent” who “millions came to feel was their own special friend”.
Fellow TV personalities Piers Morgan and Graham Norton also paid their respects.
