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."

"Lost" Guy's a Local
Again, who knew? His mom and dad, of course, who live in Easton. And anybody who went to school with him at Haverford. Daniel Dae Kim, whose character on ABC's Lost did dirty work for an Asian mobster, is the subject of the "Exit Interview" in the January's Philadelphia Magazine. Much of the talk centered on Kim's selection as one of People magazine's sexiest men alive.

Philly Mag: Are you afraid of being typecast as the Token Hot Korean Guy now?
DDK: [laughs] Typecasting would imply there's been a lot of people before me in that position, and, frankly, I don't know of a single guy that's been the Hot Korean Guy, ever. So I don't think typecasting is an issue.

Alas, he only offered one clue about where the show's headed: "Jin and [his wife] Sun will come to a new understanding." Philly mag quipped this means "either his character will learn English, or DDK has no idea what's going to happen."
