Question Cronjob output to file AND to email (as attachment)

I have a shell script that runs on our webserver logs, and grabs various useful data and then outputs this data to a .csv file.

What I want to do now is schedule a cronjob to run this script for me each week at a designated time, AND email the .csv file that is created as an attachment to several email addresses.

What's the correct/easiest method for doing this? I can set up the cronjob just fine, I just don't know how to tell it to email the .csv file as an attachment to the email addresses I specify. I do have sendmail installed and working on this server.
