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."

'Extreme Makeover' Presents House Today
Inquirer photography by David Swanson Hundreds of people showed up to see the new home.
This afternoon, the Py family was presented with the keys to a great new house, thanks to ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Editionand legions of local volunteers. William and Carole Py and their grandkids sure fit the formula for show beneficiaries: Jose, Samantha and William lost their father to a brain aneurysm and their mother to breast cancer. Just last Friday a one-story house with three bedrooms stood at the site near Haldeman Avenue and Montour Street in the Northeast. Today, there's a new two-story house with four bedrooms, a backyard swimming pool, and, no doubt, all sorts of fanciful features and decorating schemes. The website of local ABC affiliate WPVI (Ch. 6) has video reports.
