Terry Wogan stepped in to defend Chris Evans breakfast show. Writing on his blog

Quote:
"I asked all Togs to welcome Chris with open minds and hearts, and I know that they have," he said. "They know better than most that it took me years and years to build a loyal audience. Chris has had six weeks! I'm trying to build a new audience myself on a Sunday morning Give us a chance."

Perhaps many of his 'TOGs' have made up their minds and decided they don't like what replaced Wake Up To Wogan.

It doesn't say that at all, it just states that Terry's supporters are known as TOGs and that they have been the most vociferous against Chris mostly it seems because he is not Terry.

It not just because Evans is not Terry. It's because the format is totally wrong, the presenter doesn't help that either.
