Bikini Bottom News
The Bikini Bottom News (BBN) is a channel on TV, (which Patrick thinks is boring in the episode SpongeHenge). There are lots of different reporters. Everyone's favorite is Perch Perkins, who starred in the news flash announcing the Krusty Krab 2. In the earlier episodes, Johnny that did the news flashes. In the episode The Krusty Sponge and A SquarePants Family Vacation, two fish named Bob and Barbara hosts the news, and Gene Scallop reviewed the Krusty Krab in his segment, Bottom Feeding. The News featuring Perch Perkins is seen in many other episodes, such as Once Bitten, where Perch was talking about the Mad Snail Disease, and then in the episode The Pink Purloiner, Perch was at Jellyfish Fields talking about the Jellyfish Migration.
The news even appears on the radio as seen in the The Hot Shot.
