Abstract

We present highlights of long-term monitoring of low-and intermediate-frequency peaked BL Lac objects with the VERITAS gamma-ray observatory carried out in 2010, 2011 and 2012. These include the key results obtained from observations of a bright VHE flare in BL Lacertae in June 2011, as well as preliminary results of monitoring observations of five northern blazars. Two IBLs-3C 66A and W Comae-are detected in low flux states for the first time.
