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."

Local Briefing: Six Quick Stories
The teens in Sunday night's crash were probably not wearing seatbelts, police say. Mickey Teranto, 16, of Bristol Township was thrown from the car and killed. The driver was still in critical condition yesterday, and three other passengers, all 16, are still hospitalized in serious condition. More. ...
Philly's Laura Breckenridge stars in WB's "Related." The 22-year-old (left) grew up in Flourtown, summered at the Shore, and danced in The Nutcracker for the Pennsylvania Ballet. Read profile and review of the show, which airs tonight at 9. ... Farmers in the region have to be more resourceful these days to make a living. Some grow birdseed, one hauls trash for a prison, others, like Jon Yerkes (right) lure consumers directly with markets and pick-your-own fields and orchards. More. ... Edison Schools Inc. has a better educational formula, says a study. While not a "ringing endorsement," the Rand report "does show that some of these innovative strategies can work if implemented well," says a researcher. More. ... "A Cyber World of Trouble" presentation warned parents at Haverford High about such Web sites as hotornot.com, facebook.com and xanga.com. Anyone, including a sexual predator, could pretend to be someone else on one of these sites, and try to meet a child to commit a crime. More. ... A sitcom about Philly friends is coming from a Friends cocreator. David Crane, who went to Penn Valley Elementary, is the son of weatherman Gene Crane. The show's slated for fall on CBS. More.
