The Broadsheet: February 25th

Good morning, Broadsheet readers! Valentina (@valzarya) here again this morning. Greta van Susteren celebrates a major milestone, America’s Next Top Model makes a Tyra-less comeback, and Melania Trump finally does an on-camera interview. Have a terrific Thursday.

EVERYONE’S TALKING

Melania on MSNBCMelania Trump, who has stayed out of the spotlight during husband Donald’s presidential campaign, sat down for a rare interview with MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski—but very much kept her guard up.  MSNBC

ALSO IN THE HEADLINES

Get it, Greta. On Wednesday night, Greta van Susteren hosted the 3,500th episode of her show, On the Record. The Fox News anchor sat down with Fortune to talk about how she’s managed to stay relevant all these years, and shared a surprising factoid about Bernie Sanders. Fortune

#MothersMatter. The mothers of five victims of alleged race-related violence—including the moms of Sandra Bland, Eric Garner, and Trayvon Martin—have endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. Quartz

Sam’s remodels. Rosalind Brewer, CEO Sam’s Club, is moving the Walmart-owned warehouse club’s focus to improving store food brands, opening new locations in higher income zip codes, and giving regional buyers more say over what they sell. Fortune

Listen up, Bernie. While it’s widely perceived that Hillary Clinton has trouble with young women, a study shared exclusively with Fortune shows that Bernie Sanders doesn’t have the Millennial woman’s vote in the bag either. Fortune

Closing clinics. Since 2011, at least 162 abortion providers have shut or stopped offering the procedure, while just 21 opened—the fastest annual decline on record. Bloomberg takes a look at what’s happening to these clinics and what makes running them so difficult. Bloomberg

MOVERS AND SHAKERS: Kohl’s Corp. cut its chief digital officer, Krista Berry, as part of a reorganization.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

Radio starlets. Laura Walker, WNYC’s president and CEO, and Paula Szuchman, its VP of on-demand content, are driving an effort to get more women into podcasting and radio. They talk to Levo about what it’s like to be a woman on the air and what they look for in new talent. Levo League

 On Wes’s sets. Director Wes Anderson’s films are easily recognizable for their aesthetic—one of “symmetrical frames, saturated colors, and cheeky antiquity.” The person often responsible for this look is Kris Moran, the set decorator for classic Anderson films like The Royal Tenenbaums and The Darjeeling Limited.

• On thin ice. Before 2015, women’s ice hockey players had never been paid to play in the U.S. In 2016, the National Women’s Hockey League’s highest-paid player will make $22,000—or 1% of what Patrice Bergeron, the highest-paid player on the Boston Bruins, makes. Cosmpolitan

QUOTE

I think the presumption with women is that they will be team players, and that is not the presumption of men. Especially show runners. When women push back, they {are perceived as} bitches or divas.
