See FAQ 4.1.

I'm not entirely sure what you're asking for.  It is possible for a 
list moderator to also be a list member, so that they receive copies 
of all posts to the list.  All that needs to happen there is that 
they go through the same list subscription process as everyone else, 
although you may need to clear their moderation bit depending on how 
they handle the moderation process.

Setting up announcement-only lists is covered in FAQ 3.11, with some 
additional hints in FAQ 3.34.  The only difference might be that you 
set the member_moderation_action to be "hold" instead of "reject".

If there's something about this process which is not clear, please 
help us to understand what you're trying to do and which instructions 
you've tried to follow, and we'll see if there's anything else we can 
do for you.
