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."

Shocking! Local Goofball Behaves on QVC
Oh, teammate Dawna was worried: "I was very nervous about Jim on live television spewing out crude remarks about his balls, about being spanked." And: "Every three minutes something comes out of Jim's mouth that I cringe at." Bethenny likened the guys on her "freaking circus" team to "the two stooges."

But, alas, on Martha Stewart's Apprentice last night, Jim Bozzini of Gilbertsville, Pa., was actually well-behaved.

He came across like a Midwest dad as he pitched an air pump on QVC, the West Chester-based shopping network. (The "balls" were a basketball and a beach ball in need of inflation.) Viewers got to see inside QVC's warehouse where countless products line multi-story shelves.

Again, Jim's team lost -- no tour of Martha's Hampton house for him -- and he faced elimination. But Martha's ax came down on camera-shy Howie. If she snips the show's only live wire, NBC might as well pull the plug on the show.
