Jan Clayson's Secret Heartbreak
National Enquirer 19Jan00 P2

According to the National Enquirer (that font of all unadulterated truth), the early morning smile of CBS's "The Early Show" co-anchor Jan Clayson is sometimes only skin-deep, especially at Christmas. The Enquirer claims that the death of her 11-year old brother fourteen years ago still grieves her. Her father, a talented surgeon, discovered the boy's brain tumor, but was unable to halt it's progress. However, before the boy died, he asked to visit a television station. Jan went with her brother on that visit, and apparently the visit helped spark her ambition to be on the other side of the camera.

The article cites a couple of quotes that touch on Jan's faith, saying "The illness rocked Jane's deeply religious Mormon family," and "Every time I think of God taking David away, it just breaks my heart."

The article does not mention that Jan has to work each day with the man who said of the NCAA football champions in 1984: "BYWho?"
