SportsBeat will be leaving FSN Pittsburgh, but host Stan Savran will remain with the regional sports network.

FSN Pittsburgh announced Friday that it had signed Savran to a new contract, the length of which was not disclosed.

SportsBeat, the network's popular call-in show, will air its final show Monday, ending an 18-year run. The show will be a two-hour retrospective from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Savran will remain the primary host of the Pirates' and Penguins' pregame shows. He also will host Steelers coach Mike Tomlin's weekly press conference and The Mike Tomlin Show.

"While SportsBeat has come to an end, I'm not going anywhere," Savran said. "I've spent nearly half of my professional life at this regional sports network, and I'd like to end my career -- whenever that may be -- right here."
