Easy-listening "soft hits" have supplanted teen dance music as Los Angeles' most popular radio format, with KPWR-FM "Power 106" losing its two-year stranglehold on the No. 1 position to KOST-FM (103), the Arbitron ratings showed Tuesday. KPWR (105.5) dropped from No. 1 to No. 3 and KOST moved up from No. 2 to No. 1 in the ratings survey, which covered the 12-week period from June 22 to Sept. 13. "We're ecstatic," KOST program director Jhani Kaye said Tuesday.
