Abstract: Radio and gamma-ray emission from Active Galactic Nuclei (AGNs) are thought to share a common origin, related to the ejection phenomena in the vicinity of super massive black holes in the form of relativistic jets. Indeed, the vast majority of the high galactic latitude, non-pulsar sources discovered by the Large Area Telescope (LAT) onboard the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope are associated with radio sources, in agreement with the previous findings of the Third EGRET catalog. Capitalizing on the flux and spectral index data provided by the LAT and on the associations found in CRATES, BZCat, and the literature, we report on the radio properties of the LAT-detected AGNs, and their possible connection to the gamma-ray data.
