At the beginning of the season, Whittenburg spearheaded the creation and production of a weekly audio highlights package which aired on radio broadcasts across the league as well as on SiriusXM satellite radio’s NHL Home Ice channel.
 
Whittenburg also provided the radio call of the 2011 AHL All-Star Classic and coordinated the addition of TEAM 1200 in Ottawa to the Senators Broadcast Network for the 2011 Calder Cup Playoffs.
