While she was teaching at a Gymnasium in Wolfsburg from 1983 to 1987, she started to work on a freelance basis for the NDR radio. In 1987 she moved to Berlin to work as script girl, assistant director of a number of TV and film productions and editorial assistant with the SFB family program.

In 1988 she was one of the editors who was involved in setting up RIAS-TV where she presented the evening news program Abendschau and later the breakfast TV show Fruhstuckfernsehen. Several times during her career she took the risk to leave established shows for new productions where she had more influence, like her move from the well established heute journal to the heute nacht news show. Her daily lifestyle magazine Leute heute became very successful after it was at first less popular than expected and in 1995 the 2000th episode was shown. Ruge finished nearly every edition of her show Leute heute with the quote Alles wird gut (Everything will turn out fine) which became her trademark and which she also used for some of her book titles. In November 2006 Ruge announced to end her work for Leute heute on 3 February 2007 in order to have more time for her private life.
