The LF stands for Lambing Flats and the station broadcasts on the AM dial on 1350 kilohertz and a power of 5 kilowatts - more than double the power of neighbouring radio stations 2WG Wagga Wagga, 2GN Goulburn, 2PK Parkes, 2CC and 2CA, all of which are rated at 2kW. This may be due to the varying heights of the towns of Young, Cowra and Cootamundra - 2LF's core audience.

Many famous names in Australian broadcasting and television either began their career at 2LF or worked there, including Ken Sutcliffe, Ray Warren and Mike Connors. 2LF only became a 24-hour radio service in the late 1980s. Prior to this it finished broadcasting for the day after the midnight news and resumed with a test broadcast after 5am (which involved playing an album) before officially starting with the national anthem leading into the 5:30am news. When 2LF went "24 hours" it took programming from the co-owned 2WG Wagga Wagga with the on air branding of 2WG/2LF. 2WG itself took overnight satellite music programming from 2UW in Sydney which at that time provided radio network services to about 80 stations nationally.

Ken Sutcliffe is a retired Australian sporting journalist and radio and television personality.

Ray "Rabbits" Warren OAM is an Australian sports commentator, known for his coverage of televised professional rugby league matches and to an extent swimming on the Nine Network. On occasions he is referred to as "The Voice of Rugby League". Ray also used to call Australian swimming team events and the FINA World Championships until Nine lost the rights to these events in 2008 and in 2012 participated in Nine's coverage of the London Olympics.
