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."

Calling Dr. Phil-adelphia As visions of doom and gloom dance in my head (GM Tom Heckert says Eagles won't go after free agents?! ... Forsberg's going to risk his health playing for Sweden?! ... Sixers and Phillies, do something!), I can't help but wonder: Are some of us sports fans nuts? Do we need professional help? Maybe. That's why I sent off an email yesterday to Dr. Phil, urging him to become Dr. Phil-adelphia and do a show offering therapy to citizens of the City of Negativitis. (See item above.)
And what do you know? Just noticed the guy has a prime-time Love Smart special tonight, at 9 on CBS (Ch. 3). Of course, no way any of that advices applies. It's one thing to give up a woman with a history of hurtin', but giving up a local team? Not an option.
