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 ... Wade Is Out! Ya Happy? Phillies president David "No Fool Monty" Montgomery sacked beleaguered general manager Ed Wade. Stephen A. Smith's column says the move was overdue: "The players don't get it, and neither did Wade. And since Wade is the guy responsible for infesting this city with a bunch of satisfied underachievers, it was time for him to go long ago." Most fans applaud, like the guy on the right, says another Inquirer article. Let's hope Montgomery has the guts to hire a smart, independent thinker and not another get-along guy. What do you think?
