During high school, Kilborn was well-known for playing basketball, and was invited to play with the Northside Magicians because of his height, and he would soon participate in national tournaments. During his time at Hastings High School, he won numerous awards, and was subsequently given a scholarship at Montana State University, from where he graduated with a degree in theatre arts and media. He stopped playing basketball as a result of nagging injuries he received while playing in college.

He began his career as a sports anchor for KCBA in California, hosting coverage for various events such as the Gilroy Garlic Festival; he also tried his hand at being a play-by-play radio commentator for a year. Eventually he became the “SportsCenter” anchor for ESPN and held the job for three years from 1993 to 1996 – he started to earn popularity as the anchor and was well known for his catch phrases. His net worth was now well established.

After “SportsCenter”, he became part of Comedy Central as the host of “The Daily Show”, and helped the show become one of the most popular late night comedy shows in the country, so being nominated for various awards. He worked the job for three years for a total of 386 episodes and he was then replaced by Jon Stewart, then being selected to become the host of “The Late Late Show” to replace Tom Snyder, which he hosted for five years, and became very popular, but didn’t want to renew his contract – according to interviews, he didn’t feel satisfied with his career goals and wanted to retire early.

Six years later in 2010, he would return to television with a new show entitled “The Kilborn File”. He also spoke about how he left television because he felt that the format was getting too repetitive. This show would run for six weeks but was not well received and was cancelled.

Aside from his television roles, Craig was seen in the film “Old School”, and was also a part of “The Benchwarmers”. During the final season of the television show “Chuck”, he appeared as the villain. Aside from these, he’s seen in a Kraft Macaroni & Cheese commercial which started airing in 2016.

For his personal life, not much is known about it. Many sources speculate that he is married though the only information that has surfaced about family life is that he has a son.
