Scott Cendrowski, the China correspondent for Fortune, writes on LinkedIn about being laid off by the business magazine.

Cendrowski writes, “Fortune gave me freedom to write the long-form, originally-reported pieces that turn heads, and online analysis too. I’m grateful for that.

“Legacy media is struggling mightily. Some are going to make it, others are not. I hope Fortune comes out alive. Talented writers and editors still fill every nook and cranny of Time Inc., but it’s a shame they’ve lost so much talent.

“What an adventure it has been. I started my career around some of the most talented journalists out there. I cornered Peter Elkind (of book fame) in the office, helped Bethany McLean (of Enron fame) report, went to the drycleaners for Allan Sloan (all-time great skeptic fame), wrote my first feature as a 26-year-old, wrote a cover story at 29, and became a correspondent just as China was coming down from its post-Olympics high. Oh, and I happened to meet my wife in the office.”
