Lara Bingle is re-inventing herself - yet again - as a breakfast radio jockette.

It is understood the model, who is in talks to sign with Kyle Sandilands' talent management company King Kyle, is in line to cover Jackie O's maternity leave on 2DayFM's top-rating breakfast show from early next year.

If Bingle's radio ambitions are realised, she will share a studio with Sandilands who, in a fairly unique situation, could be both her co-anchor and her manager.

Jackie O, 35, will leave her post in December as she and husband Lee Henderson await the birth of their first child.

2DayFM's parent network Austereo yesterday denied a deal with Bingle had been inked but Sydney radio circles were buzzing about the fill-in role which, if successful, could help Lara make in-roads in broadcasting.

Bingle has already performed a guest stint on Sandilands' show, sitting in during last Wednesday's breakfast program which, according to one radio insider, was "not a bad effort for a first-timer".
