Join Elizabeth and Katie Live with Jackie Kallen. A show business journalist for a magazine in the 1970s, Kallen interviewed the Rolling Stones, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley and countless others. In 1977 she was assigned to interview a boxing prospect from the Kronkgym in Detroit, Michigan, Thomas Hearns. Kallen became fascinated with sports and began working as a sports journalist specializing in boxing.
Kallen spent a decade as Hearns' publicist as Hearns went on to famously fight Leonard twice. In the process she became well known around Detroit's boxing circles but met with sexism along the way.
Kallen made her managerial debut with heavyweight Bobby Hitz in 1988. She managed her first champion in 1991, James Toney knocking out Michael Nunn in eleven rounds to win the IBF world Middleweight title. Another Kallen fighter, Bronco McKart, won the WBO world Jr. Middleweight title in 1994.
Her business relationship with Toney was controversial but allowed her to gain celebrity among boxing's hard-core fans. She was featured in Ring and KO Magazine. Kallen referred to Toney many times as someone she loved like a son, but there were rampant rumors that she and Toney did not get along well behind the scenes. The pair had an on and off friendship until their bond was finally broken in the late 1990s.
Kallen was diagnosed both with heart disease and cancer during that decade, but after three surgeries she recovered and is enjoying good health.
Kallen currently lives in Los Angeles, California, and manages three professional boxers, including McKart and a prospect from the Philippines.
She recorded a public service announcement for Deejay Ra's 'Hip-Hop Literacy' campaign encouraging reading books about boxing personalities

This woman was caught in the very act of adultery. She was guilty before the Lord and before the world. Now, adultery is a vile sin, but it is no worst than any other sin. In James 2:10 the word of God says "For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of braking all of it" (NIV).
In fact, according to Rom. 3 : 10 & 23, Even if we never committed a sin with our bodies or our minds, we would still be guilty before be fore the Lord. And in the book of Gal. 3 : 22 we read "But the Scripture declares that the whole world is a prisoner of sin...". So the fact of the matter is, we are all as guilty as this woman; our problem is that we simply won't admit it. This evening we are going to take a closer look at ehis subject.
Topic: When Jesus Wrote in the Sand
Presenter: Pastor Larry Milliken
