Veteran broadcaster Sir Terry Wogan has died, according to multiple reports.
Wogan died after "a short but brave battle with cancer," the BBC said, citing a statement from the 77-year-old television and radio star's family.
Born in Limerick, Ireland, Wogan was best known for his work for the national broadcaster, where he presented a long-running radio program called "Wake up to Wogan," as well as a chat show and a beloved annual, and highly sardonic, commentary of the Eurovision Song Contest.
Prime Minister David Cameron said "Britain has lost a huge talent, someone millions came to feel was their own special friend."
BBC director general Tony Call called Wogan, whose full name was Michael Terence, a "national treasure."
Wogan was married to Helen Joyce for 50 years, with whom he had four children.
