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."

No Locals on 'Survivor' This Time Survivor: Panama -- Exile Island, which begins next Thursday on CBS, has some twists, but nobody who's truly from the Philly area. There will be four tribes for the first time, and indviduals will be sent off for solitary reflection on a nearby island. Robot-developer Dan Barry, a retired astronaut, has the closest local ties. He earned grad degrees at Princeton, but lives in Massachusetts. Pilot Terry Deitz grew up in Central Jersey near the Shore, but resides in Connecticut. Cirie Fields was raised in Jersey City, and went to school in western Pa., but calls South Carolina home.
