php preg_replace one line [duplicate]

  php, preg-replace

I want to replace with preg_replace with one line.

here’s the php file.

<?php
$var_name = 'Firstname Lastname <[email protected]>';
$var_name =  preg_replace('/</', '(', $var_name);
$var_name =  preg_replace('/>/', ')', $var_name);
echo 'OUTPUT: ' . $var_name . "n";
?>

I get the expected OUTPUT as

OUTPUT: Firstname Lastname ([email protected])

But, I want to get it with one preg_replace line?

Hope to hear from you.
