Louise McSharry is retuning to the airwaves following her stoic cancer battle, and she has her heart set on a prime time slot.
The 31-year-old currently presents a weekday slot at 8pm but she has admitted that she has her eye on a breakfast show.
"I made a decision when I was off to make the show more music-focused - I think that's what it needs at that time of day but I do miss my chats, so I'm hoping to do more of that," she told The Daily Mail.
Indeed, she got a taste for it in 2013 when she filled in for Tubs while he was on his holidays.
She added that informal, chatty radio was her favourite type of format for a show.
"Ryan is doing so well though, and his figures are great," she mused.
"Radio is unpredictable, so I'm kind of thinking I'll do something myself down the line like a podcast if it doesn't happen within the station.
"I'm so focused on that, I might have to leave the country if it doesn't happen and recalibrate my goals," she added.
Louise, who is set to marry her fiancé Gordon Spierin in August, was a member of a panel speaking at the Alex and Ani Talk Series in The Dean Hotel yesterday.
The chatty radio host also revealed that she is in the process of filming a documentary for RTE's Reality Bites in which she will open up about her battle with Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
