How do I stop my tv from picking up radio stations?

My tv is playing a radio station in the background.

Sometimes it is louder than the TV itself.

How do I go about stopping this from happening?

    There can be several causes. I lived in an apartment once that was close to a radio tower and the home apparently did not have correct shielding on the house wiring. The television, phones and even an untuned radio all picked up the station broadcast by the near tower. In my case the situation was caused by the house wiring not having sufficient shielding. It basically acted as an antenna itself. All of that equipment functioned correctly before and after that apartment.
