How do I cite an interview using the Chicago Manual of Style/Turabian?


To cite an interview you found in an online multimedia format (videos, audio, etc) you can include the interviewer/interviewee information with the usual online multimedia format. For example:


First Name Last Name of the Person Being Interviewed, interview by Name of Interviewer, Title of Broadcast, Publisher, Month Day, year of interview, multimedia format, runtime, URL if applicable.

Bradley Cooper, interview by Jimmy Fallon, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, NBC, October 20, 2014, video,10:48,

Michael Arceneaux, interview by Terry Gross, Fresh Air, NPR, May 12, 2020, audio, 33:59,


Last Name of Author First Name. Title of Broadcasting Program. By Firstname Lastname. Publisher.  Publish Date. Multimedia format, runtime. URL.

Cooper, Bradley. The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. By Jimmy Fallon. NBC. October 20, 2014. Video, 10:48.

Michael Arceneaux. Fresh Air. By Terry Gross. NPR. May 12, 2020. Audio, 33:59.

To cite an interview that is published in print, add the interviewer and interviewee information to the usual format for newspapers, magazines, or journals.
