Seg. 1: Women In Sports | Seg. 2: U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt

Segment 1: Getting more women in the male-dominated world of sports management and media. 

Women have made great advances as coaches, managers, and sportscasters, but still rarely hold the same top spots as their male counterparts. So what would it take to get more women involved? We ask a panel of sports journalists what is needed to give women a better opportunity to secure some these coveted positions.

Segment 2, beginning at 24:16: Sen. Roy Blunt's take on the Mueller report and flood control.
