Wogan goads 'nice fella' Moyles
A week after re-confirming his status as king of breakfast radio, Sir Terry Wogan said today he expected rival DJ Chris Moyles to "broadcast for six hours a day" to try to catch up with his listener figures.
Official data revealed that in the last quarter Wake Up To Wogan on Radio 2, with an audience of 7.93 million, moved clear of Moyles' Radio 1 show, with 7.72 million, after being almost neck and neck earlier in the year.
Sir Terry said he was never unduly troubled by competition from Moyles.
"I've always had a gap on Chris Moyles - it's nothing new," he said.
"The little chap does his best and I think eventually he will broadcast for at least six hours a day in a desperate attempt to catch me up."
The 71-year-old said the rivalry for listeners was entirely amicable.
"I wish him well - he's a really nice fella," he said.
"The idea that we are somehow at each other's throats is nonsense. We hardly ever see each other for a start."
