    My friend Richard Larsen of Grimes, Iowa had this same exact problem and it seems that Pandora was having a glitch that caused the random announcement. He uninstalled it and ever since it has been fine. He put the app back on to see what would happen and he has still yet to hear the "voice". Hope that helps anyone else!
    I live in Grimes, Iowa as well. Could there be a connection to that? I don't have pandora, but this voice frightens me. I've noticed that whenever the Life 360 notification pops up when it is updating my location, the voice sometimes plays. Not always, but it's happened multiple times this past week.

    I am receiving this alert several times a day. I do not have any of the aps which others have indicated as a problem. I have a Samsung Galaxy S7. Following one of the suggestions, I check developer options>running services regularly. Nothing there that seems to be the problem. I have turned off all notifications and the alerts continue anyway. This is beyond aggravating and, as several have observed, there isn't much on the internet besides this thread.

    Does this persist in Safe Mode?

    Tell me how to do this. I have deleted apps. Turned off notifications. Deleted cookies. I have none of the apps listed. I can't take it!

    Press the Power button as if to power off the device, then Long-press on the 'Power Off Phone?' message box that appears, and you'll be given the option to boot into Safe Mode. In that mode, third-party apps are disabled for diagnostic purposes.

    To exit Safe Mode, do a normal Power Off & Restart.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I am now in safe mode. These alerts disappear for awhile and then there might be several close together. So, unless I get an alert soon, it may be some time before I can be sure.

    In safe mode for 24 hours and no 'new station alerts.' So, that means I need to investigate 3rd party aps which are turned off in safe mode. That will take some doing ...

    Stopped this annoying audible message by turning off notifications in my DFW CBS Weather App.

    After 24 hours in safe mode and no alerts, I exited safe mode and began uninstalling 3rd party aps. Kept getting the alert until I uninstalled a golf gps ap SwingU. Since uninstalling SwingU I have not received any more new station alerts. I'm not sure that any one particular ap can be identified as the culprit.

    I'm surprised this isn't a H U G E story in the Android world. It is pretty weird.

    Mine was a weather app from WILX but I am sure it's third party. Deleted it, problem gone.

    For me, the voices started in December. I read through this thread and found CBS News apps or Pandora as the most likely culprits. I removed both and the voice has stopped. Should have done one at a time to narrow it down to the actual offender, but regardless removing these two apps solved the issue.

    This is a widespread issue that has been reported by Android and Apple users. I've read quite a few posts on a number of forums and there doesn't seem to be anyone who really knows what causes this. I have a Galaxy S9 and don't use any of the apps that people have been guessing as the source of the message. What's odd is that I hear the voice announcement but there is nothing in the notifications panel on my phone that relates. I am looking for the latest suggestions on this matter.

    I've been getting the a new station alert has arrived message now for about 4 days too. I haven't added any new apps, haven't changed anything at all but it is getting VERY ANNOYING and I want to know how to shut it up or else I'll be throwing this phone in the garbage. It woke me up from a sound sleep, scared the stuffing out of me, to hear a strange voice talking to me while asleep.

    PLEASE tell us how to get rid of it.

    If you have a local news or weather station app installed on your phone, this is almost certainly the cause. You won't be able to stop it by turning the notifications off through the settings on the phone. You need to open the app, then the settings inside the app and turn off notifications inside it. That should stop it.

    I HOPE THAT'S IT!!!! I opened up my local news weather channel thingy, and in the settings there's a setting for "Station Alerts". So I just turned it off. Here's hoping!

    It's been almost two months now and I haven't heard it again.

    For three weeks I tried to figure this out. Verizon and Samsung technical support personnel were not helpful. I believe the solution to the problem is as follows:

    1. Open each weather app on your phone individually. Deactivation of Notifications using Settings>Apps does not work.

    2. After opening each weather app individually, use the 3-bar setting usually in the upper right corner to access alerts or notifications. Close out all alerts/notifications for each location (cities) listed in your app. Weather Bug App is particularly suspect.

    3. My Apple Iphone gives me weather alerts but not with the annoying male voice.

    Hope this solves your problem.
