Pain and joy for Lesley Van Arsdall

The anchor has a baby, days after her mother's death.

Pain and joy for Lesley Van Arsdall


CBS3 just announced CBS3/CWPhilly anchor/reporter Lesley Van Arsdall and her husband, Mike Joson, had a baby boy on Sept. 10, just before 4 p.m. Grayson Robert Joson weighed 7 lbs 1.2 oz, and measured 19.5 inches long.

The good news is tempered with sadness: Van Arsdall's mother, Sandra, passed away Tuesday. Lesley Van Arsdall said last year that she was walking in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for her mother, who had been diagnosed with breast cancer.

CBS 3 anchor Susan Barnett, who had a boy named Steele in July (two weeks early), is supposedly due back at work on Oct. 4.
