VERITAS is one of the world’s most sensitive detectors of astrophysical very high energy (VHE; E > 100 GeV) gamma rays. This observatory began full-scale operations in 2007, and nearly 8,000 hours of its good-weather observations have been targeted on active galactic nuclei (AGN). Approximately 250 AGN were observed with VERITAS, many of these as part of a comprehensive program to discover new VHE AGN. VERITAS spectral and variability measurements, and accompanying broadband observations, are key probes of the underlying jet-powered processes in AGN. Recent scientific highlights from the VERITAS AGN discovery program will be presented.
