According to the APA Style you will not include a reference citation since interviews are not considered recoverable data, but you will include an in-text citation. You can find an example of the in-text citation below:

General format:

(IntervieweeFirstInitial. LastName, personal communication, date)


IntervieweeFirstInitial. LastName (personal communication, date)

For Example:

(A. Johnson, personal communication, November 6, 2016)


A. Johnson (personal communication, November 6, 2016)
