    Elizabeth and Katie Live with Jackie Kallen

    in Women

    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

    Was Flint Water Poisoning and Intentional Act of Genocide

    in Radio

    This show will examine whether Flint's water supply was intentionally poisoned as an act of genocide as Councilman Wantwaz Davis and film maker Michael Moore have both stated.

    Back in December, before the crisis became a national news story, Moore tweeted:

    This is a racial killing, Flint is 60% African American. When you knowingly poison a Black city, you are committing a version of genocide. If this were elsewhere, and the white leader blocked a Black city's clean water supply and made them drink poison, we'd call it ethnic cleansing.

    Our guests this morning are Martin Holmes and Nils Nehrenheim from the community group, Rescue our Waterfront.


    Martin is a cofounder of Rescue Our Waterfront.  He lives in Redondo Beach and enjoys spending time at the Redondo Pier and Riviera Village.  Martin graduated from MIT with a degree in aerospace engineering.  Today he works for the Air Force and is pursuing a Master’s Degree in systems engineering at USC.  In his free time, he travels the world, snowboards, sails, and kayaks.


    As a life-long South Bay resident, Nils Nehrenheim has lived, worked and played throughout the South Bay.  Redondo Beach is near and dear to his daily life. Being a small business owner in Redondo, and an LA County Lifeguard on the local beaches, he exemplifies the South Bay way of life and understands what makes living here so special. He jumped into local politics during the successful fight against Measure B, then became one of the leaders of another community group, Save The Riviera's fight against the Legado project. He is now taking that combined experience to work with Rescue Our Waterfront.


    This morning, we’re going to discuss the Waterfront project proposed by CenterCal and the goals of Rescue Our Waterfront.
