Calls are increasing for veteran host Leigh Sales to be dumped from the ABC's 7.30 Report program - but her highly touted colleague isn't interested in the role.

'We need to campaign to make Laura Tingle the permanent host of 7.30,' a message on Twitter said last night, receiving more than 5,000 likes.

Responding to the message Tingle, 60, instead declared her admiration for Sales, a highly respected political reporter and author.

'Thanks, but no you don’t. My day job is funner,' Tingle tweeted in response.

'And I am in awe of what Leigh Sales does day after day amongst quite a horrible environment of social media sh*t.'

Tingle's public declaration that she didn't want to replace Sales in the hot seat won her plenty of fans on social media.
