Wogan Quits Eurovision with a Boom a Bang-a-Bang

27 05 2008

Celeb: Terry Wogan

Celeb: Simon Cowell

Agency: Max Clifford Associates

Wogan has to go into the PR Hall of Fame for indicating he may quit Eurovision due to block voting.  Very few people know how to play the media game better than him (his radio show is still the most listened to in the UK with 7 million listeners). 

Sadly I was watching the Eurovision this year with quite a lot of my family (we rated Greece the best, for the record) and as soon as Wogan started to explain that he’d “have to talk to his producer about whether we’ll do it again” people in the room said, “ooh, I must tune in on monday to find out what he’s going to do.”

Hats off to Max Clifford for firing off a release on behalf of Cowell (Wogan backed by industry insiders) by lunchtime the next day.  Both Cowell and Max are quoted by a lot of sources:
