Craig Kilborn

Craig Kilborn has come a long way since his days as a radio sportscaster covering the Savannah Spirits of the Continental Basketball Association. With only a few stops between then and now, Kilborn, a native of Hastings, Minnesota, hosted and co-wrote The Late, Late Show with Craig Kilborn, a nightly comedic forum that took an irreverent look at the day's news and hippest celebrities around town. He also co-starred in the DreamWorks/SKG hit cult film Old School.

Kilborn became a sports director for KCBA-TV in Monterey, California, before being discovered by ESPN, which provided him with a national audience for his trademark sly wit. He went on to launch and host The Daily Show on Comedy Central, where he created Five Questions and A Moment for Us, which he brought with him to CBS. He served as Gear magazine's first-ever guest editor for its third-anniversary special issue in September 2001. In 2004, he had a two-day tryout with the NBA's Minnesota Timberwolves where he threw a beautiful no-look pass to Kevin Garnett. Interesting fact: Kilborn refused to shower with the other players. Showering is not a team sport, he said.
