A little about the Morning Show…

Chris Scheetz is the head button pusher and babysitter of the CISN Morning Show alongside Jacqueline Sweeney and Matt DeBeurs. Although he won’t admit it, Chris is the backbone of CISN Country (you probably shouldn’t tell him either in case it does go his head). He’s not only been THE voice on the station for over 28 years, he is also the on field host for the Edmonton Eskimos, hosts his show, “The Scheetz Show” on our sister station 630 CHED, along with years of volunteer and emcee experience including the BIG Valley Jamboree year to year and the 2014 CCMA Awards in Edmonton. He’s also the owner of FOUR CCMA Personality of the Year awards (one more than his co-hosts he like to point out). Outside of work Chris is a rabid Edmonton sports fan proudly cheering on his teams to the point a loss will ruin his day. He also owns something called the “Scheetz Kool Bus” that he treats like a third child. But his biggest accomplishment he’ll tell you is meeting and marrying his high school sweetheart, Karen (of 25 years now!), and somehow raising two very well adjusted kids, Baillie and Carter.

Jacqueline (Jack) Sweeney co-hosts CISN in the Morning with Chris Scheetz & Matt DeBeurs. In Jack’s younger days as a model (I know right?), she was lucky enough to live in some pretty exotic places like Tokyo, Seoul, London, and even the most exotic of them all, Medicine Hat. But Edmonton is where she was born & raised, and where her heart lies. Along with all her sweet modeling tips she comes in with a very strong passion for country music. Heck, she grew up listening to Chris on the radio, and is no stranger to belting out “She’s In Love With The Boy” by Trisha Yearwood into her hairbrush.​ Jack is more than just a pretty face as well. She’s is a YWCA Women of Distinction Nominee and a Sizzling 20 Under 30 Alum. Other notables include her obsession with Giraffes (she can relate to their graceful awkwardness), big hair and anything that sparkles. Charity is also close to her heart, as she can be seen volunteering for many organizations across Edmonton including The Stollery Children’s Hospital, the Valley Zoo Development Society, and Edmonton’s Food Bank. She’s married to a crazy guy named Bob and they have a sweet baby girl, Kennedy that keeps her VERY busy. ​

Matt DeBeurs is one third of the CISN Country Morning Show alongside Chris Scheetz and Jacqueline Sweeney. Much like Chris and Jack, Matt is a local, raised in nearby Sherwood Park. Fun Fact: Matt has had more jobs than anyone on earth. Go ahead, ask him. We’ve lost count on how many. Matt’s radio life (the one job he’s stuck with) saw him move to B.C. for a short while. Another fun fact: he might be the only person on earth that didn’t like living in Kelowna. Although you might not be able to tell by looking at him now, but he was also quite an athlete in his time, hockey, volleyball, basketball & track to name a few. Even ending up with a little time playing Baseball in college. With playing sports competitively behind him, he relives the glory days on the slow pitch field and as the Technical Director for a small baseball organization in the city. You’ll find him spending his free time eating his way across Edmonton with his wife Sam, video gaming, and yelling at the TV during Oiler games.

Singing the anthem is friggin’ hard. You gotta stand there, remember all the words, you’ve probably not warmed up enough, and have a room full of people look to you to lead them. that’s a lot of pressure. We should be kind to our anthem singers (Robert Clark, you’re a beauty), it’s a stressful gig. And…
