Why does my TV (and most other's I've ever seen) do this?

Why is it that when watching a channel with less than stellar reception over cable I often hear static in the audio during the times when there is text on the screen. This is particularily noticable during commercials, when it says "SALE!!!" in text on the screen the audio static increases greatly and then disappears again when the text is gone, anyone out there in the broadcasting business?
