Am I the only person who is getting the same exact news story every day on the news briefing alarm?

Every single day I wake up I swear.. After it tells me the weather and my calendar events, it goes on to say "Knight Returns to Seymour Ave the day after she tells her captor 'your hell is just beginning'"

Am I the ONLY one with this phenomenon? Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to get it unstuck on the same news story? This has been going on for a month now.

I would suggest trying to delete the widget, and replacing it. If the app was updated, the widget may be from the previous version and there may be a communication error between the new app and old widget.
If that doesn't help, email Yahoo and explain the problem.

You need ti go to widgets and select briefing. In the settings you will have to set it up to update. The default setting does not automatically update and that is causing your problem.

I know it's been awhile since this thread started but I've had the same problem and finally found the solution! For the briefing alarm to show up-to-date information you must put the Weather and Yahoo News Widget, on one of your home screens. Then go into the Yahoo News app, hit the menu button, go into settings, and set the auto-update interval to a interval of your desire. Now you'll have up to date news and weather!! :)
This drove me crazy, hearing the same story every morning for months. Now it's finally fixed. Hope that helps!!

Thanks a lot.

I checked every single setting in the entire mobile and all its apps and every line of the manual. Finally after some failed tries on google I found the right keywords to find this helpful advice and ... it works!
