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

The Jackie Robinson West Little League stripped of title. Jesse Jackson stated, "The team earned the title and will fight to keep it". Little League Baseball stripped the championship title from the Chicago team on Wednesday, despite a plea from Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. The team's coach was suspended for violating a rule that prohibits the inclusion of players who live outside a team's geographic area.
The first Black team to win the championship was instructed to vacate wins from the 2014 Little League Baseball International Tournament, including its Great Lakes Regional and U.S. championships. The national championship title was then awarded to Mountain Ridge Little League from Las Vegas.
A spokesman for the Little League International told ABC News that the organization "stands by the difficult decision" announced yesterday.
"Little League International will be working with its counsel to ensure Jackie Robinson West Little League officials and their attorney are fully educated regarding the factual basis of the decision, "Brian McClintock of Little League International said in a statement.
Nothing we do matters until white people give us a title, an award or a prize for doing it. They would stop seeking more titles and labels and awards and white validation...oscar's, grammy's, and billboards.
Jackson was born 29 August 1958, in Gary, Indiana, to an African-American working-class family. His father, Joseph Jackson, had been a guitarist but had put aside his musical aspirations to provide for his family as a crane operator. Believing his sons had talent, he molded them into a musical group in the early 1960s. At first, the Jackson Family performers consisted of Michael's older brothers Tito, Jermaine, and Jackie. Michael joined his siblings when he was five, and emerged as the group's lead vocalist. He showed remarkable range and depth for such a young performer, impressing audiences with his ability to convey complex emotions. Older brother Marlon also became a member of the group, which evolved into the The Jackson 5.
First taking to the stage at the age of just 11 as part of his family's gig The Jackson 5, Michael Jackson grew quickly into the superstardom which would both reward and plague his life. An apparently unstoppable creative and financial force through the highs of his career, 'The King of Pop' struggled with a confused and turbulent private life that was often made appallingly public. In the wake of his shock death though, it is for his artistry - and not his controversies - that he will be remembered and sadly missed.

Our guests this morning are Eric Pendergraft of AES and Redondo Beach Mayor Steve Aspel.
Steve Aspel is currently serving as the 29th Mayor of the City of Redondo Beach, having won the
election in May 2013.
Steve began his public service career in 1998 as a Planning Commissioner. In 2005, he was elected to the
Redondo Beach City Council representing District 1 for a 4 year term. He was successfully re-elected in
2009 for another 4 years.
Eric Pendergraft is currently responsible for AES's business development activities in California, which
include plans to modernize several existing natural-gas fired generating plants, and the development of
the world’s largest battery storage system. These new development projects will be built at the
Company’s existing power plant sites in Los Angeles and Orange County.
Eric is also leading the effort to transform the Redondo Beach waterfront by giving the voters the
opportunity to phase out the existing AES power plant and eliminate all future industrial uses on the
property forever. Measure B would rezone the 50-acres of land where the AES power plant now
operates, changing it from “industrial” to “residential" and “mixed-use” and allowing the development
of an attractive harbor-side village.
Eric joined the company in 1998 when AES purchased three power plants in the greater Los Angeles
areas from Southern California Edison, where he previously worked.
