This article lists the many different forms of media in the animated series SpongeBob SquarePants.





  • K-Blub - in "Sing a Song of Patrick," the station refuses to broadcast Patrick's song. SpongeBob and Patrick then 'hack' into the radio station's broadcasting frequency and it is broadcasted, which causes traffic accidents and riots.
  • WH2O (Hot Adult Contemporary, presumably) whose main DJ is Al BaCore (aka "The Tuneful Tuna").
  • KRUM-450 FM - CHR/Dance music, similar to KNRJ's Former Format. Mr. Krabs listens to this station in the episode "Krab Borg." There is a DJ that works there.[1]
  • KOLD-FM - (Classic Hits/Standards in the morning), which goes by the slogan "Your All-Oldies Station."
  • KRUD (All Your "You Won't Get Away With Stealing My Car!" Hits.), which SpongeBob imitated in "No Free Rides."





  • Bikini Times - a major newspaper in Bikini Bottom. The newspaper appears in the episodes "Party Pooper Pants" and "Pranks a Lot." The only known news story that has been featured was an article is about the 'ghosts' in "Pranks a Lot." It has one known comic, The Wisenheimers, mentioned in "Party Pooper Pants."
  • Bikini Bottom Inquirer - a tabloid newspaper in Bikini Bottom. It is a parody of National Inquirer.
  • Krabby Kronicle - the Krusty Krab's official newspaper which sold well because of false stories.
  • The Examiner - an unpopular newspaper that is sold in front of the Krusty Krab. It is filled with charts and facts as said by Nat Peterson. It appears in "The Krabby Kronicle." It is a parody of the many The Examiner magazines.
  • The Bottom Feeder - a tabloid newspaper in Bikini Bottom. It is a very popular newspaper read by Bikini Bottomites. It is sold outside the Krusty Krab. It appears in "The Krabby Kronicle."
  • The Daily Clam - not much is known about the Clam, but all that is known is that it is a popular newspaper in Bikini Bottom, and their reporter is a boy. It is a parody of the many Daily Press newspapers. It is only mentioned in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie novel.
