With his affably snarky wit, superior but never condescending attitude and penchant for sharp commentary, Craig Kilborn developed a distinctive persona as a more grown-up version of an amiable jock-cum-frat boy during stints as a late night host and sports anchor. After getting his start as a struggling play-by-play guy for a Fox affiliate in Northern California, Kilborn helped usher in a new era of delivering sports highlights in an irreverent fashion on the long-running "SportsCenter" (ESPN, 1979- ). During his three years on the cable sports network's flagship show, he - along with the likes of Keith Olbermann, Dan Patrick and Charlie Steiner - helped change forever the way sportscasters announced highlights. Kilborn moved on to host "The Daily Show" (Comedy Central, 1996-98), which allowed him to snark on the day's news and cultural events. Far less political than the subsequent version hosted by Jon Stewart, Kilborn's "Daily Show" was equally as funny. He left that show in late 1998 to take over for Tom Snyder on "The Late, Late Show" (CBS, 1999-2004), where he revamped the program for a late-night college crowd and spent the next five years building a loyal following. Though he tried his hand at his long-held dream of acting with roles in "Old School" (2003) and "The Benchwarmers" (2006), Kilborn returned to the hosting chair for "The Kilborn Files" (Fox, 2010- ), which once again allowed him to flourish in his snide, but amiable persona.
