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."

Alas, It's Not Maria Bello's Night Norristown-raised, Villanova-educated Mario Bello wears no-name jeans, eats steak, and was up for a Golden Globe last night for her role in A History of Violence. But the local favorite lost out for the best-actress-in-a-drama prize to Felicity Huffman, who played a man opting for sex-change surgery in Transamerica. See list of Golden Globe winners.
If you missed it, Carrie Rickey's profile of Bello on Sunday is still worth checking out for colorful details like how her mom went along on The Tony Danza Show, and took the spotlight making her "meatballs and sauce."
