(CNN) – Welcome to CNN Radio News Day.
Here are some of the stories we cover in today's edition:
"If they haven't decided yet maybe the final debate could change their minds or persuade them to change their minds. Maybe it'll be a campaign event or a commercial they see in the last couple days. It's hard to tell with these remaining voters when it comes to what's going to make their choice."

(CNN) – At the age of 17, Pattie Mallette threw herself in front a moving truck in a botched suicide attempt.
Six months later, Mallette learned she was pregnant with her son, now known to the world as pop star, Justin Bieber.
Mallette describes her dark past and bright future in the new book, "Nowhere but Up: the Story of Justin Bieber's Mom." Mallette told CNN she remembers the feeling the of hitting rock bottom:
[2:50] "When I was in the hospital for trying to commit suicide I was desperate and I just literally cried out to God and said if you are real you have to come and help me and if you have a purpose and a plan then it's got to be better than what I'm doing so let's see it." FULL POST

(CNN) – With the last presidential debate upon us, we felt it was time for a real education in the art of debating.
We decided to go out on a search for the best debater in the land.
Well, to name one individual as the best debater in the land would trigger a debate too long for this CNN profile.
But we certainly found one of them. And we found one of the best debate coaches in the land too, David Vincent Kimel of Yale University.
And when you listen to them on this CNN profile, we promise you will never listen to a debate with your old amateur ears again. You will be a formidable judge if you just listen.
