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."

Talk About It, Talk About It ... Philly's the 'Next Great City' "What, are you nuts?" said some staffers at National Geographic Traveler magazine, when editor-in-chief Keith Bellows decided to sing Philadelphia's praises in the October issue. The story, titled "Philly, Really," lauds the city's art, music, restaurants, housing market, Wi-Fi readiness, and appeal to young adults. Old City, it says, is "arguably the liveliest urban neighborhood between Soho in New York and SoBe [South Beach] in Miami." Read Inquirer story. See magazine's gallery of photos. You agree? Heard other out-of-towners gush?
