Tasks include editing for grammar and clarity, formatting, adding images, composing excerpts and social media posts, scheduling articles, and communicating with authors.

Editors are also expected to compose their own articles when possible.
Department Head: Department Heads are expected to lead the staff covering a specific sport. Tasks include brainstorming content for the site, communicating with authors, and submitting their own articles. Department Heads are not expected to edit articles unless they also apply to be an Editor.
Author: Authors make up the framework of Prime Time Sports Talk and are an integral part of our staff. Authors should be prepared to submit at least one article per week.

All Prime Time Sports Talk staff who have existing social media accounts are expected to maintain an active presence by interacting with colleagues, fans, and other media members. Candidates will be evaluated based on their social media professionalism but will not be discredited if they do not have social media.
