Abstract
MAGIC is a system of two Cherenkov telescopes designed to perform observations of gamma rays with energies from about 50 GeV to tens of TeV. A low energy threshold and an excellent low energy performance make it a powerful instrument for studies of high energy processes in Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN). The MAGIC Collaboration dedicates about 40% of the telescopes’ time to such observations, both monitoring of known emitters, and Target of Opportunity observations of flaring events. In this presentation we will discuss the recent highlights of the MAGIC AGN program. In particular, multi year monitoring of radio galaxies, such as M87, and strong peculiar blazars, such as PG 1553+113, will be presented together with new discoveries based on the
Target Of Opportunity program.
