Born and raised on Chicago’s South Side, lawyer and radio personality Warren Ballentine, says his goal in life is to be ‘a servant leader.’
He fulfills this goal everyday, in his hometown of Chicago and across the United States. While working at a steel mill in Illinois, Warren took weekend courses at Chicago State University, finishing with a double major in psychology and criminal law. From there, Warren’s love for the law, took him to Ohio Northern School of Law, focusing on courses that revolved around family, entertainment, and criminal law. That passion led him to concentrate on his goal of becoming a servant leader.
Today, Ballentine is an attorney, practicing criminal law; as well as family and entertainment law. Warren appears on a number of radio stations across the country via his Syndication One nationally syndicated “The Warren Ballentine Show”, He is also an accredited motivational speaker for children; and is heavily involved in community renewal. Warren’s will to succeed is birthed from a foundation passed on to him from his mother, grandmother and aunt. Warren credits these three women with instilling in him high moral values and a firm belief in self. Warren’s quote to live by is simply, “An injustice anywhere is an injustice everywhere.”
The Warren Ballentine Show features Warren Ballentine, “The People’s Attorney.” The listeners he calls his “Truth Fighters” have an open and frank discussion each weekday about legal issues, politics, education, religion, sex, and anything else that’s topical. During his three hours of “thought radio,” Warren shoots straight from the hip and inspires his listeners to not just complain, but to take action to solve problems.
Already on air: The Warren Ballentine Show is currently cleared in 4 of the top 10 markets including WAMJ-FM Atlanta (#6 A25-54) WILD Boston, WCHB Detroit and WOL Washington. WVON Chicago is slated to begin broadcasting the show in mid April.
