Doesn't Fox know that comedian Craig Kilborn is from Minnesota? Apparently not.
Kilborn's new half-hour show, dubbed "The Kilborn File," will debut June 28 on Fox-owned stations in L.A., New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Boston, Detroit and Austin, Texas, according to a report today by Broadcasting & Cable. It will be a six-week test run in those markets. See the full story at www.broadcastingcable.com/article/452872-Fox_to_Test_Kilborn_in_Seven_Markets_This_Summer.php
According to the L.A. Times, if "The Kilborn File" can grab some ratings, its distributor will look to expand the show's reach.
Kilborn, who grew up in Hastings, has been off the tube for six years. Kilborn first made a mark on ESPN'S "SportsCenter'' and went on to host the pre-Jon Stewart "Daily Show" on Comedy Central. His last big TV gig was as host of CBS' "The Late Late Show" from 1999 to 2004.
