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."

Kimmel and Cousin Sal Give Car Away in Philly 

Sure it was a publicity stunt for Jimmy Kimmel Live and Pontiac, but Philly got a taste of national TV last night. There's Jimmy's Cousin Sal at a curb in Philly, mike in hand, waiting for a bus. Watch what happens on the abc.com "Sal Dreamaker" video ... or just read on. First off the bus is Philly's Brett McGinley. Sal asks if he's 18. Yes. Valid driver's license? Yes. Next comes a question that Jimmy says is Sal's way of picking up guys: "Are you ticklish?" "Not on the nipples!" says Brett, doing The Cringe. Final hurdle: Unscramble the letters on this board we just happen to have. Jimmy and Sal loudly talk about the sandwich that just arrived for Sal, a CHEESESTEAK, as Brett shuffles letters. Jimmy asks Brett where his favorite CHEESESTEAK place is, and Brett says Geno's, then, aha, guess what the letters spell. Dude, you won a new Pontiac G6! "Bleep! No bleeping bleep! No BLEEPin' BULLeep!" says Brett in full Phillyese. Recently had his own wheels towed for illegal parking, he says, then hugs and kisses the lady in red delivering the car keys. Way to push your luck, kid!
