Midwest Radio Network - 80 years of experience

From its humble beginnings in 1938, Midwest Radio Network has grown to be a global player in online news media while maintaining its root involvement in regional broadcasting.

About 2LT

Operating 24/7, and transmitting at 5,000 watts from twin aerial towers at Wallerawang in the New South Wales midwest, 2LT on a frequency of 900AM, is a contemporary radio station pumping out classic hits and talk, including local, national and international news.

2LT first began broadcasting in 1939. The original licensee company, Midwest Radio Network, which is in control of the station today, was incorporated in New South Wales, Australia, in 1938 with the express purpose of establishing the station.


During the course of its near 80 year history, 2LT has been part of the Macquarie Radio Network, Western Newspapers, the Daily Mirror Group (UK), Fairfax Media and Rural Press.

Local sport is a priority as are community events.

2LT, which primarily covers the midwest region of New South Wales from studios in Lithgow, is also licensed to serve the City of Blue Mountains. Expansion into that region has begun with the establishment of a 1,000 watt directional aerial and transmitter at Wentworth Falls. The allocated frequency is 101.1 FM. The Blue Mountains service is expected to be fully expanded in 2017/18.
