We consider the two point correlation function of a scalar current in the QCD sum rule approach to estimate the overlap amplitude of the a0-meson. We then employ QCD sum rules to calculate the coupling constants $g_{\omega a_0\gamma}$ and $g_{\rho a_0\gamma}$ by studying the three point ${a_0\omega\gamma}$- and ${a_0\rho\gamma}$-correlation functions.
