(CNN) – Welcome to CNN Radio News Day.

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

  • The presidential candidates are back on the campaign trail, after their first debate.  Analysts and a snap CNN poll agreed Republican Mitt Romney came out on top.  President Obama's camp is downplaying any possible impact on the November election. Debate watcher Lauren Robinson hopes Mr. Obama will be a bit more effective in the next debate:

[4:39] “I think he has to be better about articulating the particulars in terms of how and why his policies are better for the country than Romney."

  • Tensions between Turkey and Syria are mounting to dangerous levels.  Turkey has been firing on targets inside Syria in retaliation for the killing of five Turkish civilians hit by Syrian shelling Wednesday.  CNN International Correspondent Nic Robertson says war is very imprecise :

[9:52] "Shells have fallen in Jordan before injuring civilians.  They've fallen across the border in Lebanon.  Turkey as well now killing people. So you have that danger as well that it just metastasizes...  The unpredictable will happen and we're beginning to see it. "

  • For years women have been complaining about street harassment, which often goes way beyond wolf whistles or cat calls.  Now some bloggers like Brittney Gilbert are getting involved in a movement that's aiming to blow the whistle on the tormentors:

[14:33] "I had no idea until it happened to me how incredibly violating it felt. And the process I went through was like wow I feel really icky, I feel like crying, I feel like vomiting."
