Hosted the postgame show "Kiner's Korner" during much of his time on the WOR-TV/WWOR-TV broadcast team and the show returned during the final years on Fox Sports Net. In 2006, with the launch of SNY, Kiner joined the regular broadcast team during the fourth inning of selected Friday home games and some holidays. After his death in 2014, the Mets wore commemorative patches on their uniforms for the remainder of the season. The television booths at Shea Stadium and Citi Field are named in his honor.
