Capt. Richard Phillips Talks with 100.5 The River’s Tom Cook [Video]

Capt. Richard Phillips is in Grand Rapids today.

Phillips was captain of the MV Maersk Alabama during its hijacking by Somali pirates in April 2009; and his heroics were chronicled in the Oscar-nominated 2013 film "Captain Phillips" starring Tom Hanks.

Tonight, he is the keynote speaker for Davenport University's Excellence in Business Dinner Gala, a black-tie fund-raiser for Davenport University Foundation student scholarship funds, at DeVos Place.

This morning, he spent time with me on 100.5 The River. I was filling in for Andy Rent on the "Andy Rent Show" along with guest host Tim Harris. Andy is currently on vacation in Hawaii, where he's on a group tour with YMT Vacations and listeners of 100.5 The River.
