Abstract: We report on very high energy (VHE, E > 100 GeV) γ-ray observations of several active galactic nuclei (AGN) with VERITAS, an array of imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes (IACT) located in southern Arizona. VERITAS, the most sensitive VHE instrument in the northern hemisphere, has recently discovered γ-ray emission from the high-frequency peaked BL Lac (HBL) object 1ES 0806+524, and the intermediate-frequency peaked BL Lac (IBL) objects W Com and 3C 66A. Additionally, VERITAS has many ongoing and completed multiwavelength campaigns and a very active blazar monitoring program.
