Former talkback radio host Maggie Barry will put her name forward to stand for National in the Botany by-election.

Ms Barry, who stood down as the drive time host for Radio Live at the end of last year, today told Stuff that she would be trying for the National nomination at the March by-election.

Nominations for National candidates standing in the seat close tomorrow at 4pm.

The by-election was called after former Cabinet Minister Pansy Wong resigned over fallout from her husband's misuse of the travel perk.
