Sir Terry is one of the country's most popular radio hosts
BBC Radio 2 veteran broadcaster Terry Wogan is launching his first podcast.

Listeners will be able to download highlights of Wake Up To Wogan, the nation's most popular breakfast show, from the internet.

He has dubbed the weekly compilation a Togcast, named after his fans who are known as Terry's Old Geezers and Gals.

He said: "I've given up trying to beat 'em, so now I'm joining 'em and I'm going to do it better than all the others. Look, Ma - I'm Togcasting!"

Podcast trial

The podcast, which starts on Tuesday, features speech highlights including listeners' e-mails and Pause for Thought.

The launch is part of the BBC's podcast trial, which runs until the middle of the year.

In January it was revealed that almost two million BBC radio podcasts were downloaded during December, with the corporation's breakfast programmes the most popular with listeners.

Radio 1's Chris Moyles topped the chart with his show downloaded 446,809 times. Radio 4's Today came in second place.
