According to APA, the proper method is to do an in text citation, but not include on your Reference page as it is not a sources that anyone can access:

"An interview is not considered recoverable data, so no reference to this is provided in the reference list. You may, however, cite the interview within the text as a personal communication."

Examples:

  • (J. Smith, personal communication, August 15, 2009)
  • J. Smith (personal communication, August 15, 2009)
