TL;DR: Pittsburgh loses its longstanding sports narrator, Stan Savran, who brought life to the city’s sports scene for nearly five decades. His iconic voice, which had become a comforting soundtrack in Pittsburgh homes, has been silenced forever at 76. Pittsburgh is left reminiscing on their glorious sporting moments, as narrated by the ‘Godfather’ himself.
The steel city is draped in silence. The cheers and roars of the ‘City of Champions’, Pittsburgh, have momentarily hushed with the loss of their beloved sports godfather, Stan Savran. His microphone has been retired after almost fifty years of non-stop, passionate sports commentary. Yes, you read it right – five decades! 😲🎙️
You’d wonder, what made Stan Savran a legend? What made him a household name in Pittsburgh and beyond? Why are we eulogizing a sports commentator? 🤔
