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."

Steph, you ingrate! Last night on CBS's Survivor, Stephenie LaGrossa, who grew up in Glenolden and went to Temple, betrayed Judd big-time. She got to spend time with her boyfriend, flown to Guatemala from the States, thanks to Judd. She beamed as she hugged Judd (left pic above) and sat by her man (right). And what thanks does Judd get later? His name on her tribal pink slip with a frowning happy face she drew. Nice. In his parting shot, the hotel doorman called the last castaways "scumbags" and said he hoped they got gobbled by gators. Good luck winning with him on the jury, Steph.
"She blindsided me, backstabbed me," Judd said on CBS's Early Show this morning.
Btw, a surprise reward last night: "a Philly steak sandwich," to quote host Jeff Probst. Came with ketchup and fries. Starving players bid for it sight-unseen, and the two who paid $180 jumped for joy and hugged, while jealous Judd could only comment, "Whew ... paradise."
