About

American actor and talk show host,Craig Kilborn has an estimated net worth of $7 million.

The 6'5" Minnesota native, who played Division I basketball at Montana State from 1981 to '84, did not originally set out to be a sportscaster or a talk show host but hoped to break into showbiz as a comedy performer and actor.After a stint as a play-by-play commentator for Georgia's Savannah Spirits, he headed West to the Los Angeles area where he enrolled in a host of improvisation classes.Within two years,he had landed the position as sportscaster at KCBA-TV in Salinas (near Carmel and Big Sur), where his quick quips won him notice and a fan following that included Robin Williams, who sent Kilborn and autographed poster after Kilborn cried "Jumanji!" while commenting on a clip of a basketball slam dunk at the same time Williams' film was opening.

An acting career rarely seemed to loom on Kilborn's horizon, he did make his debut as a thespian in the bit part of a policeman in "Open Window", a 1991 Showtime TV-movie.Over a decade later, by then a well-established celebrity, he cameoed in college-minded comedy "Old School" (2003).

Kilborn was born on August 24, 1962 in Kansas City, Missouri, and recently aired his new show, The Kilborn File on Fox.
