Wogan House falls silent this month as engineers continue to decommission the BBC Radio 2 and 6 Music studios. The stations have been based in what was then Western House since 2006, at the time of the Broadcasting House re-development. Prior to that there were some production booths in the building. Radio 2 and 6 Music have been moving into new studios back over in NBH, with the daytime news bulletins now coming from studio WG1. Any late-night revelries in the BBC Club, also in Wogan House, ended in December 2023 prior to its move into the existing Media Cafe area by the end of April.

The BBC first occupied Western House in 1953 and for many years it was the home of the Designs Group of the Engineering division. A car showroom remained on the ground floor premises until the early 60s. Later the Recorded Sound Effects Library moved in.

The lease for the building will transfer to Landmark Space who propose to use it as ‘flexible office spaces’. It will be known as 99 Great Portland Street.
