The BBC has renamed one of its buildings in tribute to the late broadcaster Terry Wogan, who died in January this year.

To honour the 77-year-old Limerick man, the BBC has announced that the home of BBC Radio 2 at Western House on London's Great Portland's Street will now be known as BBC Wogan House.

Wogan passed away in January following a battle with cancer.

Wogan's family said of the honour, "BBC Radio 2 was such an important part of Terry's life. He spent so many happy years there doing what he loved.

"The whole family are extremely touched by such a wonderful gesture."

Wogan presented the breakfast show on BBC Radio 2 from 1972 to 1984 and again from 1993 to 2009.

"Terry was a much-loved Radio 2 personality and it is right we honour him in this way," BBC Director of Radio Bob Shennan said.

"Each time we all walk through the doors of Wogan House we will be forever reminded of him - his warmth, wit and endless charm."
