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

I'm very excited about this guest; Jackie Walters, Ms. All World Beauties International 2014 is here to talk about not only her platform Diabetes Awareness but also about her new Diabetes Support Group that she has formed. Her platform is Diabetes Awareness, and the reason she chose this, is because she has lost family members to this silent killer of mankind and also still have family members battling this disease. Jackie says "And if I can advocate to my community on how to get tested with early diagnosis, taking their medicine and regular exercise will prolong their life expectancy; then I would have done my job".
Jackie's hobby is collecting crown pins, but also enjoy shopping for shoes and outfits for different events that she attends. Jackie also enjoys collecting stuff animals.
