The Blue Network was the on-air name of an American radio production and distribution service from 1942 to 1945, which traced its formal origins back to 1927. It was born of a divestiture, arising from anti-trust litigation, of one of the two radio networks owned by the National Broadcasting Company, and is the direct predecessor of ABC.

## Selected biography

Sir Michael Terence Wogan, KBE DL (born August 3 1938) more commonly known as Terry Wogan, is a veteran Irish radio and television broadcaster, who has worked for the British Broadcasting Corporation in the United Kingdom for most of his career. He has been a leading media personality in Ireland and the UK since the late 1960s, and is often referred to as a "national treasure" of both the United Kingdom and his native Ireland.[1][2]

Terry Wogan, the son of a grocery store manager in Limerick, was educated at the Jesuit school of Crescent College from the age of eight. He experienced a strong religious upbringing, later commenting that "There were hundreds of churches, all these missions breathing fire and brimstone, telling you how easy it was to sin, how you'd be in hell. We were brainwashed into believing."[3] Despite this, he has often expressed his fondness for the city of his birth, commenting on one occasion that "Limerick never left me, whatever it is, my identity is Limerick."[4]
