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."

Breaking / Faking News: T.O. Gets Punk'd!
After T.O. aids a "victim" ... "police" give T.O. grief.
"He's a hero!" a woman says after Terrell Owens helps groaning old people next to an overturned van. But glory turns to misery as a lawyer and other police start giving the Eagles wideout a hard time about moving victims. "Not a hero in this state!" says the lawyer. Worst of all, a guy asks for an autograph because his nephew is a "giant Donovan McNabb fan." But it's all a prank, staged for Ashton Kutcher's MTV Show Punk'd. It'll air Sunday at 10 p.m.
