"I've had 35 wonderful years commentating on the Eurovision Song Contest for radio and television. I am sad to leave it all behind," Sir Terry Wogan said to the BBC. "From my first, in a small musichall in Dublin, to my last, in the huge arena in Belgrade, it has been nothing but laughter and fun. The silly songs, the spectacle, the grandiose foolishness of it all." Wogan announced the possibility of stepping down right after the Final of the 2008 contest in Belgrade, after UK contestant Andy Abraham finished last.
