What Is Early Word? The Philadelphia Inquirer's experimental online "morning show", which began in Sept. 2005, went on hiatus in the summer of 2006, after a gradual shift to putting more of its content directly on Philly.com.
About the Host Peter Mucha, husband and father of two, grew up in Cherry Hill and is a lifelong Philly sports fan. He's been writing and editing for The Inquirer for 18 years.
His motto (at least for today): "If I'm not brief, give me grief."

Game Day Special ... Your Coach's Mustache! OK, "Early Word" is a weekday morning gig. But since Terrell Owens has yet to score his first post-pout TD, we thought we'd resurrect this bit from Monday. You know T.O. has a trick up his sleeve. What'll he do? Put a big piece of tape over his mouth? (Not likely.) Toss cans of Progresso into the stands? (Poking fun at Donovan McNabb's Campbell's ads.) Flap like a bird, saying, "Cheap! Cheap!" to tweak the front office? Here's how he'd look putting on an Andy Reid mustache. Post your best idea or guess. Prediction: Eagles 31-13, rebounding big from Monday night's loss.
