Each week, he also co-hosts a radio show called Dari and Mel with fellow announcer, Dari Nowkhah. Over the span of his career, Kiper has created a number of tactics that are still widely known, including the "Big Board," which is a literal board that he uses to rank players each week. Kiper's top 25 picks make the board. His voice has also been used on a number of video games, especially those that are NFL based.
