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."

Oscar Nods Didn't Help Usually, best-picture nominees get a second life at the box office. Not this year. Over the weekend, with only two weeks till the Oscars, the top-10 box-office draws didn't include a single nominee. More moviegoers warmed up to Eight Below than Brokeback Mountain. To Date Movie fans, Good Night and Good Luck sounded like a line of dialogue. The Pink Panther chased Munich off the map. And Curious George aroused more curiosity than Capote. Meanwhile, the list of top-50 video rentals showed no evidence of a Crash.
