The Australian stand-up comedian and actor, who has been filming new show Tricky Business for the past nine months, said that he "enjoyed" presenting the annual awards ceremony in 2011 but is too busy to commit to it this year.
Bourne told Merrick Watts on his Triple M radio show: "I really enjoyed it last year, I had a ball. To me, it wasn't television, it was like doing a bit of a live variety show, it was great fun."
The star said that "you do have to prepare a bit" to be the main presenter of the Logies, adding that he didn't "want to get into that zone" because he has "just wrapped the show Tricky Business this week".

The Nine Network family drama, which will rival the Seven Network's Packed to the Rafters, stars Bourne as head of the family Jim Christie, while Debra Byrne has been cast as his wife Claire. Other cast members include Gigi Edgley, Sophie Hensser and former Home and Away actors Kip Gamblin and Lincoln Lewis.
Nine bosses have described Tricky Business as "warm, funny and moving", adding: "The show is an interesting combination of family relationships and a little bit of chase 'em down action."
Stars linked to the presenting job at this year's Logie Awards include Shaun Micallef and Adam Hills. Other past Logie hosts include Bert Newton, Rove McManus and Eddie McGuire.
