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."

That Morning Star If you step out the door around 6:30 and look east, you'll see a brilliant light low in the sky. It's Venus, which at its brightest is outshone only by the sun and moon. From now till summer, Venus will gradually get higher in the dawn's early light. By year's end it will be in the twilight sky again, after passing behind the sun.
