How do I cite an interview using the MLA format?


To cite an interview, use the MLA rules for that format (book, newspaper, etc.) with the interviewee as the author. Adding interviewer information is optional. For example:

Khan, Moazzam. “An Interview with Moazzam Khan, Ex-Director General Marine Fisheries Department ‘Our Post-Harvest Losses Are 90 Percent.’” Technology Times, 3 June 2020,

Abrams, J.J. "Exclusive: J.J. Abrams on Star Wars, Apple, and Building Bad Robot into a Hollywood Force." Fast Company, 9 Apr. 2019, Accessed 11 June 2020.

To cite an interview found on YouTube, use this general format in your Works Cited:

Last Name, First Name of Interviewee. Title of Video. YouTube, uploaded by, day month year it was uploaded, URL of video.

X, Malcom. Malcolm X - Interview At Berkeley (1963). YouTube, uploaded by reelblack, 11 Jun. 2018,
