Abstract
VERITAS is one of the world's most sensitive detectors of astrophysical VHE (Very High Energy; E $>$ 100 GeV) $\gamma$-rays. This array of four 12-m imaging atmospheric-Cherenkov telescopes has operated for $\sim$10 years, and nearly 5000 hours of observations have been targeted on active galactic nuclei (AGN). These studies of blazars and radio galaxies have resulted in 36 detections. Most of these detections are accompanied by contemporaneous, broadband observations, which enable detailed studies of the underlying jet-powered processes. Recent highlights from the VERITAS AGN observation program and scientific results are presented.
