From the Purdue University Owl website on citing a personal interview in APA format:

"No personal communication is included in your reference list; instead, parenthetically cite the communicator's name, the phrase "personal communication," and the date of the communication in your main text only."  Shown below are two examples of this:

(E. Robbins, personal communication, January 4, 2001).
A. P. Smith also claimed that many of her students had difficulties with APA style (personal communication, November 3, 2002).

You can find additional guidance on citing in APA Style for personal interviews from the library's Writing and Citing Libguide - APA citations (access via the library on Blackboard, use the 'Research/Explore' link and choose 'Libguides' from the menu).
