Text Message started notifying me of Contact name when I receive a text

Member

I have had my phone for over 2 years.  I have a Galaxy S 3 and am using "Verizon Messages" as my text app.  For some reason, now when I receive a text message, it rings the notification sound and then also says " Message Received From --------"and gives the name of the person.  How do I stop this?  It is very annoying most of the time.  I just want my notification sound.  Not the voice. 

I haven't made any changes to my phone.  It just started doing it.  I'm sure it's due to an update, but there HAS to be a way to shut this off.

Pleae help!

Is it possible that the Driving Mode has been turned on?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
