Wogan Producer dies aged 59

Paul Walters, a long-time producer of Sir Terry Wogan's breakfast show on BBC Radio 2 has died in hospital following a long illness.

Paul was better known as Doctor Wally, and had been with the BBC since 1974.

Sir Terry, on news of his death said: "To know Paul Walters was to love him. His character was in his smile. He was charming and he was relaxed, almost to the point of sleep sometimes. He was the self-styled 'best putter in the world' and he was also the best music programmer in the world. Millions of listeners will mourn the loss of a friend. Me too," he added.

Lesley Douglas, Controller for BBC Radio 2, said: "Paul Walters was a uniquely talented producer. He loved radio, music and Wake Up To Wogan. In return he was loved by every individual who knew him in Radio 2, and by millions of listeners to the station. His relationship with Terry Wogan produced magical radio which will be remembered with affection for years to come," she added.
