(CNN) – Welcome to CNN Radio News Day.

Here are some of the stories we cover in today's edition:

  • The presidential election is just 39 days away.   Campaigning is intensifying as President Obama and Republican hopeful, Mitt Romney prepare for their first debate, next Wednesday. Each side is playing up the other candidate's debating skills.   CNN  Political Editor, Paul Steinhauser says:

[1:26] " It's basically lowering the bar and campaigns have been doing this for years and we're seeing boththe Romney and Obama campaigns doing it now."

  • A cyber-attack shut down the websites of some of the biggest banks in the United states over the past week, including Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo and PNC.  An Islamic militant group is claiming responsibility, although security experts aren't too sure about that claim.  CNN Money's David Goldman says the hackers managed to swamp the websites with so much traffic they crashed:

[6:42]"It was twice as large as anything  that we've ever seen.   It's ten to twenty times larger than the average attack on a bank.  And, that's what led these sites to essentially collapse and not be reachable for users."

  • And, it's truly  an end of an era in baseball. This is the final season for Atlanta Braves third baseman, Chipper Jones. CNN's Edgar Treiguts sat down with the likely Baseball Hall of Fame inductee to ask about his place in baseball history.

[14:40] "I want to be remembered as a winner...I want to be remembered as a mentor and a good teammate.."
