This is how I do it for my lists in cron:

00 12 1 * * /usr/bin/mutt LIST at DOMAIN.COM -s 'Monthly List
Instructions' < ~/LIST.mailman.txt

That all goes on one line, and the LIST.mailman.txt file contains the
message you want to send. Mine uses Mutt to send the mail, but there
are many other ways/tools to accomplish this.
