The North Sac Beat was the brainchild of Christopher Shannon, a resident of the Hagginwood neighborhood. Christopher is a graduate of Sacramento State where he earned two BA degrees and a Master of Science in Recreation Administration. He also contributes to the Natomas Buzz and Sacramento Press.

Chris started the North Sac Beat to raise awareness about the happenings in North Sacramento.
